Aluna to be shown by the City of Santa Marta

October 23, 2014

We have just received news that the City of Santa Marta has requested a commemorative public showing of Aluna in the city’s main plaza on 9th November, which would have been the 22nd birthday of Jacinto Sauna.

Jacinto, the son of the Kogis’ political leader Jose Santos Sauna, was murdered at his home on October 14th, immediately following on the death of an Arhouaco woman and five children in a landslide, and eleven Wiwa in a lightning strike on a meeting house in the Guachaca valley.

Before the showing, there will be a slide-show presentation honouring Jacinto. Alan will be there as a guest of the city. We are moved and grateful to be invited to share in this and are preparing a special version of Aluna with Colombian voices for the showing.
