We Women Warriors follows three native women caught in the crossfire of Colombia's warfare who use nonviolent resistance to defend their peoples' survival. Colombia has 102 aboriginal groups, one-third of which face extinction because of the internal conflict. Despite being trapped in a protracted predicament financed by the drug trade, indigenous women are resourcefully leading and creating transformation imbued with hope. -- (C) Official Site

An impressive effort that tells the gripping, complex story of a country and a people under siege.
How can one not respond to someone like tribal leader Flor Ilva, who declares, "We women are warriors, not with weapons, but with our thoughts and through raising our children."
The director's DV cinematography can be rough and ungainly, but it provides sterling glimpses of both family intimacy and its larger social context ...
A strikingly original depiction of the role of women in a complicated struggle for human rights.
Ends up on the wrong side of history in Colombia, ironically aligned with the counter-revolutionary historical legacy of imperialist backed ethnic divisions. And a useful idiot screed alarmingly never questioning the film's anonymous financial donors.
