Eleven Years is a lyrical portrait of one family’s efforts to transcend the trauma of their history. It follows Anyi as she takes her first step towards civilian life after 11 years fighting as a rebel in the Colombian jungle, guided by her mother Adriana, also a former rebel fighter, now studying psychology. Eleven Years explores the way circles of war, violence, and trauma are carried in and throughout one family.
The film is directed by Emily Wright, it is a Colombia-UK coproduction between Disobedient Films, Crack and The Guardian Documentaries.
I managed the partnership with Ford Foundation, Proimágenes, and Fundación Mujeres de Éxito.
