SYNOPSIS: The murders of his family in rural Colombia could have inspired a young Jesús to pick up a gun; instead, he bought a camera. Jesús dedicated the next 25 years to documenting Colombia’s war and became an acclaimed photojournalist. In The Witness, 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 Jesús a reason to believe in a lasting peace in Colombia.
WHERE TO SEE THE FILM: Following preview screenings at Curzon UK The Witness launches internationally on NETFLIX on 28th June 2019.
