Fic-Vic is a film festival for peace, created by Juvenal Camacho, and supported by local businesses and through the work of volunteers. It has shown 13 short films throughout Colombia, including in remote Quibdó, Pasto and other areas. "The objective is to make the festival visible showing that peace can also be built with few resources", says Camacho who travels Colombia with a briefcase full of films and the dream of having victims tell their own story this way.

In one of the regions most affected by the conflict, where guerrillas, paramilitaries and the Public Force have done untold things, something is beginning to change. In the square of El Carmen de Bolivar, epicenter of the Montes de María massacre, victims, armed actors, social leaders and peasants from all corners gathered in the the first Festival of Reconciliation. For Soraya Bayuelo, whose brother and a niece were killed by armed individuals -- Paras and Farc -- the warm afternoon of December 6 will be forever marked in her memory as the day of forgiveness.
