In 2009 Dado and I self produced a documentary about civilians killed by colombian army and presented as guerrilleros killed in actions. A silent crime with more than 2000 innocent victims. This story has been a huge scandal in Colombia, but is almost unknown outside the country. That's the reason why we decided to produce and film this documentary, to give voice to this victims and make their story visible.
The documentary name is Falsos Positivos, it has played at more than 30 prestigious festivals around the world and recently won two: Arcipelago film festival in Rome Italy and critic prize in Genova film festival.
We use to ship copies to all the people that ask for one around the world. But now many more people are asking for copies, which became very expensive for us. So we thought to produce a proper DVD with extra content and sell it.
With the revenue we will finance our second documentary that we plan start to film in few months and we are writing right now.
Our Kickstarter goal is to fund the "Authoring" and printing of a good quality DVD, as well as organize a web page for online selling.
The DVD will be region free. The original language is Spanish/English. It comes with English, Spanish, Italian and French subtitles.
The extra content include the full interviews we realized with the analysts and protagonists of the movie, including: José Miguel Vivanco, directo of Human Rights Watch for Americas, Colombian attorney general and Noam Chomsky, considered by NYTimes the most important intellectual alive.
