On the Other Side

Iván GUARNIZO Colombia, Spain 83 Min PG13 Asian Premiere

A poignant documentary that follows the journey of two brothers to find their mother’s former captor, now a target for political execution.

In 2016, after decades of conflict, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) signed a peace deal with the state, starting a process of reconciliation—the latter an unlikely prospect for many who had been abducted by the FARC. Yet, up to her death, Beatriz never ceased to recall her former captors fondly, particularly a certain Güérima, then the same young age as her son, director Iván GUARNIZO.
