Kidnapped by members of the Revolutionarr Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) three months before the Colombian presidential elections in 2002, senator and Presidential candidate Ingrid Betancourt continues to be held by rebel guerilla forces. Her family and supporters carry on a desperate quest to free her and keep her campaign for a new Colombia alive. In a country controlled by drug cartels and corrupt government officials, Ingrid Betancourt has been an outspoken advocate for reform in her embattled nation. At this time, she remains a prisoner in the Colombian jungle. THE KIDNAPPING OF INGRID BETANCOURT is a must-see documentary about the abduction of an extraordinary woman of vision, and the global efforts to free her from captivity. Part of the Mother Jones agitators and instigators series. Co-presented by the Center for Investigative Reporting, Cine Accion, Latino Film Festival.
