Documentary About Colombia's Native 'Women Warriors' Nears Funding Deadline
Filmmaker Nicole Karsin is in the home stretch of getting her seven-year project to audiences, and she's reaching out.
Karsin has made a film called We Women Warriors, about the human rights catastrophes and struggle for survival that have afflicted the indigenous people of Colombia, particularly as viewed through the eyes of Native women. The film's Kickstarter campaign has just a few days left to secure the rest of its funding, money that will make possible completion of a broadcast cut, launch of a grassroots screening tour, and the production of an educational DVD and discussion guides.

“[The film] provides a metaphor for the inextricable bond between Colombia’s indigenous people and their land and culture – and between the single mothers widowed by the regional conflict.”
-- Village Voice
“If you want a film that will make you think, this is it.”
