Details

In November 2016, after 53 years of bloody civil war and years of negotiations, the historic peace treaty between the Colombian government and the FARC rebels was signed. 7000 guerrilleros were distributed across transition camps and handed over their weapons to the UN. 40 percent of what had been the largest guerrilla group in the world were women. Between 2017 and 2019, photographer Ann-Christine Woehrl and author Cornelia von Schelling entered into intense talks with six former rebels and documented their dramatic stories. They are typical for the lives of thousands of women who, after decades of armed fighting, are looking for a way back into a society that is largely hostile to them. There is no simple way.
