Abstract

Alias María brings attention to child soldiers in Columbia's ongoing civil war. Maria must bring a commander's newborn child to safety while avoiding detection by government-backed paramilitary troops. On her journey, she discovers that she is pregnant, a result of her indoctrination into the guerilla army. The guerillas forbid female soldiers from having children but encourage their male soldiers to see women as sexual objects.
