“Until The Sun Dies“ unfolds its stories over co-incidences of the contrary: life born from death, and death from the pursuit of peace and justice. Through its insight into the struggles of two social leaders in Colombia’s “post-conflict“ era, the film invites us to delve deeply into the stories of those who have defied violence and demonstrates that the human spirit can prevail and leave a legacy of hope in the midst of the deepest darkness.

 

Two stories, told side-by-side on simultaneous struggles, woven together into a universal portrait of courage. In one thread, we follow Nobel Peace Prize nominee Luz Marina, a mother seeking justice after the extrajudicial killing of her son. In the other thread, we follow the Nasa indigenous leader Albeiro as he defends his territory against armed groups and multinational companies. The ancestral Indigenous saying “until the sun dies“ mirrors Luz Marina’s and Albeiro’s uncompromising fight for a world where life wins over death, equality over inequality, and the voice of the people over the imposed silence of violence. But their stories also mirror a condition of humanity, where the beauty of life and resistance is seamlessly falling into death and destruction.
