May 12th - The Witness (2019) 1:16

The murders of his family in rural Colombia could have inspired a young Jesús to pick up a gun; instead, he bought a camera and dedicated the next 25 years to documenting Colombia’s war. Jesús goes in search of the subjects of his most iconic photographs to explore what it means to forgive the horrors of the past. While an unexpected meeting forces him to relive his nightmares, it also gives him a reason to believe in a lasting peace in Colombia.
