Colombia One

Directed by Bruce “Pacho” Lane

A documentary about the first Peace Corps group, 1961-63.

“Colombia One” was the very first Peace Corps group. We started training in  June, 1961, and volunteered as community organizers for two years in villages from the Caribbean coast to the Amazon jungle. Since our return in 1963, we have stayed in touch by email. visits and reunions. The film starts with footage of our training and work in Colombia, and follows our lives over the last 50+ years.
