Impunity 

When: Thu., Nov. 3, 7 p.m. 2011
Price: donations accepted
In 2005, right-wing paramilitary soldiers in Colombia were charged with crimes including the torture, slaughter and disappearances of thousands of civilians. Incarcerated officers agreed to testify in exchange for reduced sentences of five to eight years. During the information-gathering stage, relatives of the dead and missing watched the testimony over closed-circuit television outside the courtroom. The film Impunity documents this period, capturing the responses of the civilian Colombians to developments in the trial. Directed by Juan José Lozano and Hollman Morris, Impunity is a story of atrocities followed by political corruption and interference in the proceedings by powerful members of the Colombian government. Tonight at 7, Tivoli Cinemas (4050 Pennsylvania, 913-383-7756) screens the film and hosts a discussion with a group of Colombians. Admission to this first screening outside New York is by donation; proceeds benefit sister communities of the Colombia Support Network of Kansas City.
