No festival without an enemy is the strange motto of a street festival that takes place annually on December 28 in Guapí, a small city on the Pacific coast of Columbia: the "Festival of Innocent Children." Originally celebrated in the entire region of Latin America in memory of the massacre of the innocent children in Bethlehem, it has developed into a brutal carnival in a region of pristine forests and riverscapes inhabited by Afro-Colombians, a region plagued by drug wars, paramilitary massacres and a guerilla war. As part of a staged birthday celebration in Guapí, live marimba music is presented along with disturbing video recordings of the celebration and of self-incriminations on the part of the inhuman paramilitary.
