Our Favorite Colombianos!

Colombiana hit theaters over the weekend, but not everyone was necessarily looking forward to it. The film, which stars our September cover girl Zoe Saldana, is about a young Colombian woman who becomes an assassin after witnessing the murder of her parents. Members of PorColombia, a nonprofit group, feel that the film uses the country’s armed conflict to its advantage and plays on stereotypes.

Some folks feel very strongly that the film only portrays one side of what it means to be Colombian—so we wanted to take the time to acknowledge some of our favorite citizens of the South American country.
