INSURGENTE

INSURGENTE accompanies the guerrillas of the Colombian FARC-EP through the peace process and the transition from war to an uncertain civilian life. The FARC-EP (Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia—Ejército del Pueblo / Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia—People's Army) was founded in 1964 and was, until it handed over its weapons, the oldest guerrilla movement in the Western hemisphere. The peace agreement might have ended a civil war that lasted fifty-two years, but the reasons for its outbreak remained unaddressed by it.
