UNCENSORED is a documentary about violence against journalists and the importance of freedom of the press to a free, democratic state. Through the lives of three Colombian journalists, the film recounts the peril journalists endured while covering Colombia’s narcoterrorism violence in the 1980s during the reign of Pablo Escobar’s Medellin cartel, the 1990s during the rise of corruption in the military and 2000s during a behind-closed-doors oppressive administration.
Despite differences in time period and situation, there are many reporters today in war-torn and conflict territories who suffer physically and psychologically in similar ways as the Colombian journalists of this era. The film will provide critical insights into the dangers journalists face while reporting from today’s conflict-torn territories such as Mexico, Central America and the Middle East.
This is the story of Colombia’s highest profile political assassination and the innocent man who took the fall. Why was it so important to do away with a hugely popular presidential candidate, and who stood to benefit? Who is Jubiz? recounts Alberto Jubiz Hazbúm's battle against an entire system through his writings made from within prison walls.
