A film about inspiration, determination, and courage…and a Nobel Peace Prize winner’s pursuit of peace.

Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos won international praise for signing a peace agreement to end five decades of civil war that left some 260,000 people dead and 8 million displaced. His persistence transformed a country that was once the murder capital of the world into a global destination for investment and tourism. Port of Destiny tells the story of Santos' path to peace: As Defense Minister he waged war on FARC, a terrorist guerrilla movement; as President, he brokered peace—but paid a steep political price. Featuring interviews with former United States President Bill Clinton and former United Kingdom Prime Minister Tony Blair, the film draws on deep access to its Colombian subjects to tell the story of how this former military hawk risked his career and his legacy to bring peace to his people.

ABOUT THE

FILMMAKERS

SellersEaston Media, together with the film team of Emmy-award winning director Robert Abbott, traveled to Bogota, Colombia, and the formerly FARC-controlled surroundings to interview President Juan Manuel Santos, his family, political leaders on all sides of the spectrum, and victims of the 50 years of violence. Former President Clinton and Prime Minister Blair, also interviewed by SellersEaston, offer intimate perspectives on their friend and fellow statesman, and reflect on the lessons his struggle holds for other conflicts around the globe.

President Santos will speak globally about his government's peace efforts, lessons in conflict resolution, and his commitment to protecting the world from war, terrorism, and environmental harm.
