A.N.S.W.E.R. Coalition Film Showing & Discussion
El Baile Rojo: Memoria de los silenciados
(The Red Dance: Memory of the Silenced)

With a report on the current struggle in Colombia from Cristina Gutierrez of Frente Colombiano por el Socialismo (FECOPES)

The film’s title comes from the name of the extermination operation against the Patriotic Union (UP), a legal leftist movement proposed in 1984 by the FARC guerrillas as a political means to end the civil war.

Director Yezid Campos, a Colombian anthropologist and documentarist with no party affiliation, decided to take up the issue “to do something for the country and to express the anguish felt.”

The film has testimonies from 25 survivors of nine different incidents, of the 3,000 that were tallied by Reiniciar (‘restart’), a non-governmental organisation that is leading the UP’s collective petition filed with the Inter-American Commission for Human Rights. 2003, 56min., Spanish with English subtitles.
