Summary
"Uprooted" seeks to bring attention to a mounting calamity inexplicably left out of the world's spotlight. The internal refugee crisis in Colombia is one of the worst in the world. Over 3.5 million people have been violently displaced since 1990. Most of them Black Colombians from the Pacific coast, an area prized for its national resources and development opportunities. The film explores the plight of Noris Mosquera, one of the more than 1 million Afrocolombians uprooted from their land. Her son dreams of leaving the refugee center for a burgeoning soccer academy in the capital city of Bogotá, and Noris will do all she can to make his dream a reality. Through her day-to-day plight, we delve into the tragedy of uprooting and discover the power of resilience.
