City of Knowledge invites you to the presentation of the documentary “The Negotiation” and a conversation with its director, Margarita Martínez, on Wednesday, June 26 at 5:00 p.m. at the City of Knowledge Convention Center.

With never-before-seen images, exclusive interviews and the voice of all the parties involved, the documentary “The Negotiation” (2018) is the intimate story of the long and tortuous peace negotiations between the Colombian government and the FARC guerrillas. It portrays the long search for peace and the difficulty of transforming a country that has only known war.
