Call Me Stormy

Finding righteous currents in turbulent times

Captive Radio

Huber Hoyos’ early Sunday morning broadcast every week on Caracol Radio has a small but vital audience — the more than 1,000 hostages held captive by FARC guerrillas in the jungles of Colombia. Hoyos, a former hostage himself, calls his show “The Voices of Kidnapping.” His guests are relatives of the hostages who use the program to communicate with their loved ones. Lauren Rosenfeld profiles these families in her new documentary, Captive Radio, winner of the 2012 Hearst Documentary Award. Here’s an excerpt from the film, recently uploaded by ifilestv, a news-oriented YouTube channel curated by the Center for Investigative Reporting.
