FILM SYNOPSIS – We Women Warriors follows three native women caught in the crossfire of Columbia’s warfare who are using nonviolent resistance to defend their people’s survival. In Colombia there are 102 aboriginal groups, one-third of which are in danger of extinction because of the ongoing conflict. Trapped in a protracted predicament financed by the drug trade, indigenous women are resourcefully leading and creating transformation imbued with hope. We Women Warriors bears witness to rights abuses and interweaves character-driven stories about female empowerment, unshakable courage and faith in the survival of indigenous culture.
