Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars

Caught between guerrilla forces, paramilitary groups and the police, Colombia’s indigenous people are constantly threatened with violence and gross injustice. But a trio of women—each from one of the country’s 102 aboriginal tribes—have found ways to lead their communities in peaceful protest and rebuilding. This quiet, deliberately paced documentary favors interviews over fly-on-the-wall footage, but one interruption of an on-camera talk by armed soldiers is a potent reminder of how precarious the lives of this population can be, and how the perseverance of its characters represents a strikingly female display of strength.
