After a three-week break, we resumed the distribution of our series on platforms, premiering its second chapter. We continue to believe in the struggle of social leaders and communities for their rights, and we reiterate our desire for a peaceful resolution of Colombia’s situation. We call for dialogue and the exercise of empathy, which allows us to understand the needs of the people.
LA MOCHILA DESGUALANGA’ leaves the silence to continue telling the stories that we find in the Pacific territory with the hope that the record of our experiences will allow you to get closer to that beautiful and contrasted territory in a more intimate way.
This experience took place in Buenaventura, the largest port in Colombia, 4 years after May and Gustavo’s first voyage.
During those 4 days -96 hours- in a fast operation of filming and investigation, 7 filmmakers recorded encounters with surprising characters and places that, with their openness and sincerity, shared ancestral thoughts and knowledge.
We invite you to load your backpack with us again and fully enter the Buenaventura Expedition, with this chapter called ¡Living Pacific, touring Buenaventura! that reflects the tenacity of the women of the territories.
The podcast is part of a more extensive experience, where videos, texts, map routes and other multimedia materials are connected for a more complete approach and from different points of view. To access all this content, you can follow the links found in the chapter description or connect from the project website.
We recommend listening to the podcast with the blog entry that complements the stories narrated by May and Gustavo and leaving us your comments, congratulations and / or criticisms about the contents in the blog’s comment box.
Currently, the blogs of La Mochila Desgualanga’ are available in Spanish and English, including those that complement each podcast chapter, in order to share the stories with people from all over the world, the team of creators is still looking for collaborators who can donate their work for the translation of the podcast scripts into English.
