Life Is Sacred

.
Violence is a fact of everyday life in Colombia, where the drug cartels have kept the country in an armed conflict for decades, and where almost all families have lost a loved one.
The unorthodox presidential candidate Antanas Mockus does all he can to reverse the vicious circle with an imaginative and positive election campaign. His idealism is both his strength and his weakness in a corrupt political system, where the people have lost faith in being able to make a difference.
An inspiring man, and an inspiring story, whose points are relevant far beyond Colombia's borders.

Press

  • If anyone doubted that idealism has a place in politics, then Life is Sacred winningly shows that it can
    The Hollywood Reporter
  • Dalsgaard shows how Mockus's actions would come to have a positive effect on the 2014 election... Highly recommended.
    Video Librarian
  • Dalsgaard’s absorbing film shows that even against apparently insurmountable odds, change can happen. You just need to be a little bit more Mockus.
