The three indigenous women profiled in Nicole Karsin's documentary deal with pressing problems by taking the long view. Colombia's 102 tribes have worked to maintain their native cultures for five centuries.
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."
[A] quiet, deliberately paced documentary ...
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.
Looks and sounds considerably better than nearly every other independent documentary of its kind, forming an argument that's clear and cogent and virtually free of obvious manipulation or pandering.
