Hello Ingrid, I'm also a Colombian filmmaker, I saw your videos on the "Social Cleansing" it's horrifying to see things like this taking place in Colombia.
I'm also in the process to put together a documentary about "Falsos Positivos" in Colombia, you can take a look at a video of this project here: http://www.documentary.org/community/IDA-resources/fiscal_sponsorship_donate?film_id=3308
Right now we are looking for funds and/or donations to shoot this film.

Congratulations on your project.
