COLOMBIA IS NOTORIOUS for its politics of fear. In The Company of Fear explores the power of non-violent resistance to oppose state terror, through the work of “Protective Accompaniment”. This is a strategy whereby foreign volunteers offer human rights activists the un-armed protection of an international presence. The theory is that countries that kill their own people don’t want the world to know about it. In quest for the roots of violence the film examines the international community’s role in generating and deterring terror.
