Prize of the Ecumenical Jury, Warsaw 2012

Operation E dramatises the personal and social effects of the Columbian drug wars. Caught in the midst of the conflict, Crisanto and his family have to survive the drug dealing guerillas, a corrupt government and grinding poverty.
This film shows the suffering of innocent people, and the compromises they have to make, in the face of the world’s evil. Crisanto’s fight for human rights, not chosen but imposed by the situation, is for the simplest and most important things in life: a stable family life, security, peace and basic human dignity.
