Our Song to War — Conversation with Juanita Onzaga

96 -

In this short conversation, Gwynne Fulton speaks with Colombian-Belgian filmmaker Juanita Onzaga about her experimental documentary film Our Song to War (2018). Invoking the lost souls of the dead killed in the crossfire between left-wing guerrillas and state-sanctioned paramilitary forces in the remote town of Bojayá, in the Chocó jungle, Our Song offers a haunting vision of a town seeking peace in the wake of war. Fulton and Onzaga touch on themes of memory and the politics of mourning, Afro-Colombian resistance, and syncretic rituals that assume responsibility for the dead of the Colombian armed conflict.
