My Kidnapper

by Mark Henderson

My Kidnapper film poster
Runtime: 83′

In 2003, Mark Henderson was one of eight tourists captured and held by leftwing guerrillas in the Colombian mountains. His documentary is both a self-styled “search for closure” and a gripping survivor tale in which Henderson (joined by three other survivors) retraces his steps, relives the ordeal and interviews the captor who befriended him on Facebook. The abduction, it transpires, turned out to be a disaster for all concerned. My Kidnapper – charged, complex and always compelling – revisits the ruins and speaks to the ghosts.

The film was followed by a Q/A with Mark Henderson – Director; Melita Sunjic-Hummel – UN High Commissioner for Refugees; Michael Hansmann – Diakonie Katastrophenhilfe
