A Chocolate Trail to Peace

A lovely review by Karen Attman of Flavors of Bogotá, after watching Chocolate of Peace in the restaurant Salvo Patria in Bogotá.

Chocolate de Paz, or Chocolate of Peace, is a documentary made by Gwen Burnyeat and Pablo Mejía Trujillo that looks into the lives of these people who have strived for peace when there hasn’t been any, who have persevered in their non-political stance when everyone around them has worked to involve them – or kill them. It traces individual stories through images, film, art, interviews, and cacao. It tells us how these people have won – and at times lost – in their fight to live peaceful lives.
