Bristol première - exclusive last interviews with Raul Reyes
Cinema Klandestino return with a bang to present the Bristol première of this film, unreleased in the UK and not yet even screened in Colombia.
From an international TV production company specialising in frontline investigative documentary and journalism... the production team are making a special visit to Bristol to introduce Promises and Bullets, introduce the film, host Q&A and as always with CineK, lead a discussion afterwards.
The film contains extensive and exclusive interviews with the FARC's key negotiator, Raúl Reyes, assassinated by the Colombian government in a bombing raid in Ecuadorian territory two months ago.
In this accessible introduction to Colombia deep-rooted social conflict, Promises and Bullets charts the history of Colombia's war, exposing the roles of the guerrilla, paramilitary groups, the army and the Colombian government. The film looks in depth at the role of the Colombian government, questioning its ability and readiness to broker a real and lasting peace. Finally Bullets and Promises presents a space for ordinary citizens of Colombia to speak out about the conflict and how it affects them, a rare opportunity in a place where being critical of the status quo results in being labelled a guerrilla/terrorist.
