  • University of Miami School of Communication alumnus Noah DeBonis, B.A. ’10, M.F.A. ’13, has embarked on a journey to film the reintegration process of former Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) guerrillas into Colombian society. The country had the opportunity to end its civil war, which has lasted more than five decades, by signing a peace treaty with the FARC guerrillas.

  • The Center for Communication, Culture and Change is proud to host Brigadier General William Salamanca, Director of Protection and Special Services (DIPRO) for the Colombian National Police on April 2 at 1 p.m. in Shoma Hall, CIB 3053, at the School of Communication. General Salamanca will speak about the work that the Colombian National Police have done to address the commercial sexual exploitation of children in his home country of Colombia.

  • Before enrolling in the MFA film program at the School of Communication a year ago, Luis Jose Galvis Diaz studied journalism in Bucaramanga, Colombia, and worked as a television producer, a radio commentator and a film critic. He also taught history of cinema at the Universidad Autonoma de Bucaramanga.

    “I love movies,” Galvis said recently, “but more than anything, I am a storyteller. I came to film by way of writing.”
