Clara Rojas, FARC’s ex hostage opposes to the movie Operation-E, based on the story of her child who was born during her captivity.
Rojas argues that the film, already released in France last November, could affect her child’s development. After he was born, in 2004, the FARC separated him from his mother and placed him in some peasant’s home. A few days after Rojas’ liberation, authorities identified the baby in a state foster home in Bogota.
Directed by French-Spanish Miguel Courtois, the movie is about the story of José Crisanto Gómez Tovar, the peasant who welcomed Emmanuel.
Rojas addressed an appeal to the Superior Court of Bogota. If a judge accepts the request in first instance, the Court will have until the 25 to make a decision.
The ex-hostage watched the movie in March and affirms “it’s not only José Crisanto’s story. There is no doubt the tape begins almost from Emmanuel’s birth and we say that the entire story makes references to the difficulties we had to face in the jungle.”
