Weaving songs, interviews, and archive footage, Cantadoras is a musical journey through ancestral resistance to violence, from working in white-owned mines, civil war in which violence rests heavily on rural communities, and contemporary challenges. Cuba’s instrumental role in the peace process in Colombia gives this film a special significance.

Followed by Q&A with Hugo Rivalta (Cuba) and David Sierra (Colombia)
