Political Settlements: Colombians’ Persistence in the Search for Peace: Interview with ‘Chocolate of Peace’ Producer

Nathalia Salamanca, Colombian researcher at Edinburgh university, interviews producer and co-director Gwen Burnyeat about making Chocolate of Peace, which was screened twice in Edinburgh thanks to the support of Global Justice Academy. In this interview they discuss the making of the film as a tool for disseminating academic knowledge to non-academic audiences and contributing to the discussions about the peace process in Colombia, the persistence of grass-roots peace-building initiatives like the Peace Community of San José de Apartadó, building humanity amid much hardship, and the post-conflict risks faced by the Peace Community in the implementation phase of the peace process.
