Love in conflict

VENEZUELA / 20'/ 2D

Armed conflicts are scenarios in which there only seems to be death and destruction. In those moments, life seems to wither at the rifles sounds. If this is so, it is possible to love someone when you are surrounded by death? In “Love in Conflict” ex-guerrilla members and their lovers offer us an honest and disturbing look at their relationships during the most violent years of the half-century war in Colombia. As an expression of something deeper and broader, this animated documentary presents love stories that developed fighting against gender roles, military discipline or the passage of time. These love stories, from their diversity and complexity, provide us with insights into obscure and forgotten aspects of the reality of the conflict in Colombia.
