Ever wonder about how to begin to make sense of the long-standing conflict in Colombia? IC is hosting a showing of the film IMPUNITY: WHAT KIND OF WAR FOR COLOMBIA (2010). It centers on efforts toward transitional justice in Colombia, with a focus on the trial against paramilitary armies, and the connections of these groups with political and economic elites in Colombia and in the U.S.. It examines the question of whether the victims' families are doomed to stay victims forever or are they able to fight Impunity?
