“Hope for Colombia” follows the 10 day Grace Pilgrimage through and around the Colombian capital Bogota in November 2010. It is a portrait of two projects – Tamera, a peace research centre in Portugal which organized the pilgrimage, and the Colombian peace community San José de Apartadó. It follows the leaders and participants of the two projects as well as the international participants from Israel, Palestine, Germany and other countries and shows the coming together of the two communities, their encounters with other peace activists and groups in the city of Bogota, shanty towns and remote areas, and with government officials to create a network of protection for the peace community in Colombia and to show a possible path toward a global culture of peace in a seemingly hopeless situation.
