Film screening and discussion

Hasta que se apague el sol
(Until The Sun Dies) unfolds its stories over co-incidences of the contrary: life born from death, and death from the pursuit of peace and justice.

It follows Luz Marina Bernal, a Nobel Peace Prize nominee and mother seeking justice after the extrajudicial killing of her son and Albeiro Camayo, a Nasa indigenous leader who defends his territory against armed groups and multinational companies, both social leaders in the Colombian "post-conflict" landscape.
Here, the ancestral Indigenous saying “until the sun dies” mirrors Luz Marina’s and Albeiro’s, uncompromising fight for a world where life wins over death, equality over inequality, and the voice of the people over the imposed silence of violence.
Hasta que se apague el sol (Until The Sun Dies) is a restless meditation on territory and identity, grief, and community. (CFI)

Unidas por la paz is a migrant collective in Berlin that works at the intersection of civil society mobilisation, advocacy, education, information and networking. We have a particular focus on peace processes in Colombia, social processes in Latin America and peacebuilding in Germany, where we as migrants network with local groups and groups elsewhere in the world. Through projects in which dialogue and direct contact play a central role, we are committed to intercultural work that enables the exercise of an active civil society in conjunction with the development of political awareness and critical positioning to change the context.

Catalina Flórez Ibarra, founder and executive director of urua Films, is a Colombian filmmaker, producer and journalist. She coordinates the intersectional mentoring programme for women* filmmakers INTO THE WILD, for which she recently won the Robert Geisendörfer Award for her social engagement. Catalina has produced and directed award-winning films and commercials. She is currently working on her feature documentary directing debut about two Colombian rock stars.

The Chile-Latin America Research and Documentation Centre (FDCL) is a non-profit organisation that was founded in Berlin in 1974 and has been based in Berlin's Mehringhof since the early 1980s. The FDCL is one of the oldest organisations of international Latin American solidarity and today sees itself as part of the worldwide movement critical of globalisation. The FDCL is a reference and hub for solidarity groups and people interested in Latin America, who can use it as an open space for such projects. As a politically independent non-governmental organisation, the FDCL engages in networking and is involved in various national and international thematic and solidarity-related associations and campaigns.
