If you ask Colombian politicians, they will tell you the 40-year-old civil war is over. But The War We Are Living reveals another Colombia, where the war is all too real - and the battle is over gold. In Cauca, in the Pacific southwest, two extraordinary Afro-Colombian women fight to hold onto the gold-rich land that has sustained their community through small-scale mining for centuries.
