In Colombia’s war-torn indigenous villages, three brave women use non-violent resistance to ensure their peoples’ survival. Battles between guerrillas, paramilitary forces and the army particularly endanger Colombia’s one hundred and two aboriginal groups, dozens of which are even on the brink of extinction because of the violence.

Despite being trapped in the middle of a long drawn out genocide financed by the drug trade, native women in Colombia are creating and leading a transformation, imbued with resourcefulness and hope.

'We Women Warriors' bears witness to human rights catastrophes that have long been ignored and interweaves extraordinary character-driven stories of female empowerment, unshakable courage, and faith in the endurance of indigenous culture.

This film is proudly hosted by UCL-Institute of the Americas in collaboration with the London Latin American Film Festival 2013.
