Noris’s captivating story lends a human face to what is an often invisibilized and dehumanized population.’The displaced’ are portrayed as an uncomfortable consequence of the civil war, and a drain on resources. « Uprooted » acts as a counter-narrative to humanize internal refugees in Colombia, and across the world.
Above all else, this documentary is an intimate portrayal of the tragedy of uprooting; a beautifully detailed tale about struggle and resilience; a bittersweet story of loss, love, family, and dreams.

Few people know that the internal refugee crisis in Colombia is second only to Sudan, and projected to become the worst in the world within the next decade. Uprooted explores the complexities of displacement and their and their resettlement in slums and refugee shelters far from their communities.
