JUAN MANUEL SANTOS is the subject of new, powerful documentary, Port of Destiny: Peace, which tells the inspirational story of his pursuit of peace in Colombia after five decades of civil war. Revealing how Santos' persistence transformed a country that was once the murder capital of the world into a global destination for investment and tourism, Port of Destiny's title is taken from one of Santos' signature maxims: that if you have a "port of destiny," a true passion or calling, even the most unfavorable winds can help you reach your destination. Santos brings this empowering message of leadership and resilience to events worldwide, leaving audiences inspired, informed and motivated to powerful action. 

PROGRAMMING IDEA: Provide your audience with a truly memorable experience with a screening of Port of Destiny followed by a conversation and Q&A with President Santos.
