A revolutionary love story in Colombia
Date created :
In the sixth episode of our "Forbidden Love" series of reports, we travel to Colombia for the tale of a "revolutionary" love story. When Keiner and Angela first met, he was a soldier in the Colombian army and she was a member of the country's main communist guerrilla force, the FARC. In a country traumatised by this ongoing decades-long conflict, their love story isn't always seen as a positive symbol, and the young couple now lives in fear of reprisals.
A collaboration between Arte, RFI and FRANCE 24, "Forbidden Love" brings you the stories of modern-day "Romeo and Juliets", whose relationships are faced with major obstacles, be they religious, racial, political or social.
