On June 27, 2017, the FARC-EP guerrilla will finish to hand over their weapons.
After four years of negotiations at Cuba between the FARC and the Colombian government, the peace process is now engaged in its last step, the implementation of the agreement and the bilateral ceasefire. The insurgent army of around 7,000 combattants will come back to civil life and participate in political spaces.
The series presents an intimate point of view about the daily lives of the FARC guerrilleros to seize their identities. It focuses in particular on women who represent around 40 % of the fighters. A key issue will be their reintegration in the civil life. The extent and nature of women?s participation during conflicts is frequently underestimated, and therefore their own place in the implementation of a peaceful state. When they ?entered in the line?, they abandoned their name for a new identity. Sometimes very young, these women chose to join the insurgent army despite of precarious conditions in a war context. They found a group of new relatives and an alternative to the traditional way of life for which they are intended to in the countryside.
