A Colombian Family tells the story of Ruby, a trade unionist who has seen family and colleagues killed, and her daughter Yira, who lives in exile. In the shadow of the Colombian peace talks, mother and daughter are trying to forgive the letdowns of the past. Can they become a family again? Can one choose between one’s homeland and one’s family, and is love enough in order to reconcile?
Post-screening Q&A with Ruby Castaño and Mariela Kohon (Senior International Officer, TUC).
Contributions from Mick Whelan (ASLEF General Secretary and JFC Chair) and director Tanja Wol Sorensen.
