Cahiers de Medellin
(Diario en Medellín)

by Catalina VILLAR

cahiersdemedellin_60(1)

Medellin, the notorious cartel-controlled city. The first victims of its violence are the children and teenagers. Survival means trying to cling on to any semblance of peace: women (often from broken families), school (lacking resources), the church (omnipresent). In a school run by surprising teacher, the students use their copybooks to try and write down the stories of their violent lives and give themselves some bearings. Millerdad and Sandra, Maria-Eugenia and Doralba, Juan-Carlos and Camilo talk about maternal tenderness, the absence of fathers, the battle to survive, childhood and the will to live.
