Lost Roads

In Colombia, a territory the size of Portugal belonged to the guerrillas. For almost 60 years you could not go without running the risk of being kidnapped or getting into a combat zone. Although peace was signed almost 5 years ago, Colombians are still afraid to go. So we used Chevrolet SUV’s to show they can handle any terrain, even those filled with dirt roads and bombed-out bridges. And to find out how to get to the different tourist destinations, we used former guerrillas, who today are seeking a new way of life, as tour guides. We went with a filmmaker and a war reporter to document everything in a 23-minute film that was shown on the Discovery Network to prove the world is possible to return to that area of the country, leaving tourist businesses operated by those people who today need a chance at life.
