La Sierra

Thousands of people were killed in gang related violence in Colombia over the last ten years. This film profiles three young people living in La Sierra, a Medellin barrio which is controlled by paramilitaries known as the Bloque Metro. It chronicles their lives and their involvement in the conflict, and records the despair and poverty they experience, and the hope that the changes that are made will bring peace and a better life for them and their families. Directed and produced by Scott Dalton. 2005. 84 min.
