Michael Dorgan, documentary producer and presenter with Go Forth Films:

“This was the first time our team had come to Colombia. Like a lot of people, we had our preconceptions about the country, given its history. We found that the reality was very different and everyone was friendly and welcoming (…) I would 100 percent return to Colombia. I’m already looking for projects that will allow us to come back.”

“We were in Maria La Baja, a small town an hour and a half from Cartagena. It used to be very dangerous about 10 or 15 years ago, but now it seems very safe. We found great stories about people who lived through the conflict, which was very interesting to film. I would recommend this area to anyone who is interested in learning more about the history and present of Colombia.”
