Promises and Bullets charts the history of Colombia’s war, from its humble origins to one of the most protracted and violent conflicts Latin America has ever seen. By exposing the role of the guerillas, paramilitary groups, the army and the Colombian government, the film illustrates the full magnitude and complexity of Colombia’s war. The film gets a first hand account of the FARC’s objectives, structure and ideology, through exclusive interviews with its leaders who explain why the guerilla force refuses to give up its armed struggle.
