FILM: My Kidnapper

Alex Procter from Renegade Pictures tells us about their new documentary, ‘My Kidnapper’, to be shown on 11 February at The Ritzy

In 2003, Mark Henderson was one of eight backpackers taken hostage whilst trekking in the Colombian jungle. What started as an innocent tourist adventure ended up as 101 terrifying days of captivity and uncertainty about his future. Eleven months after his release Mark received an email from Antonio, one of his kidnappers, and one of his fellow hostages received a Facebook friend request from Antonio’s girlfriend, another of their captors.

‘My Kidnapper’ is an extraordinary feature-length documentary directed by Mark Henderson and Kate Horne. The film follows Mark and three of his fellow hostages as they return to the Sierra Nevada mountains in Colombia, and eventually confront two of their kidnappers. It’s an emotional journey into a kidnapping, told from all sides. Acclaimed by festivals worldwide, it’s about to screen at The Ritzy Cinema on 11th February.

If you are interested in the chance to witness this moving documentary, come along to the Ritzy on 11 Feb or check out the film’s website for other London screenings.
