Colombia’s Guerrilla War: A Sundered Nation

In Colombia, government and paramilitary forces are terrorizing the populace to deprive the FARC and NLF guerrillas of civil support. But far from stamping out the war, this policy has led to an escalation that threatens to destroy the country. This program combines newsreel and documentary footage of life and death in Colombia’s rural districts, cities, and guerrilla camps with interviews to explore the roots and the results of the 20th century’s longest guerrilla war. Members of Bogotá’s Institute of Political Studies, the Red Cross, and the Church; army officers; guerrillas; politicians; and some of the 1.5 million refugees air their views on the terror and the tragedy of a nation divided. (53 minutes)
