Short description

'Los negociadores' is a transmedia documentary about the Colombian armed conflict and the peace process in Havana between 2012 and 2016. The use of multiple media and communicative platforms to present a non-fiction narrative, gradually and incrementally explaining the nature of the Colombian conflict from its origins to the present, including three unsuccessful attempts to reach peace, up to the present relative stability and a fourth agreement signed by both sides. We propose to recount the history of the conflict beginning with a historical timeline from the earliest stage of the armed conflict in 1964 through the key events of following decades. Second, we envision a linear documentary of a little under two hours that follows the progress of the peace negotiations in Havana in 2012-2016. Third, an interactive dialogue will allow for a conversation with the different parties to the conflict, provide content to users, and offer them a set of in-depth interviews regarding the most closely guarded secrets of the peace negotiations. Then, users will be invited to participate more actively through social networks where victims will contribute to a participatory forum. Finally, to increase visibility and raise consciousness about the Colombian experience, all the documentary content collected will be made available for classroom use in an educational project with guided viewings for groups all around Colombia.

How innovative is the project

This project wants to offer current and future generations a realistic and even-handed transmedia narrative of the Colombian peace process. Also, will help reinforce the peace process by educating viewers about the conflict’s origins and evolution, the terrible suffering that it brought, efforts at reconciliation, and the participation of the warring parties in peace talks. Finally, its aim it's to create a platform for an interactive conversation in which the voices of all who have been involved in the conflict and in its resolution can be heard
