Brief
On September 26 of 2016, Colombia signed the peace deal. That was the first day in a long time in which we could sleep in peace, except those who no longer have a place to: victims of war. Colombia is the second country in the world with the largest displacement. Colombian Red Cross created a program to help refugees while they can return to their homes. But who wants to fund such a cause? when the whole conversation was about the peace deal and nobody wanted to talk about refugees and forced displacement.
Idea 
If media, government and industrial leaders thought that forced displacement was a small problem, we decided to show them on a big screen the real magnitude of it, a screen they can´t fast forward, close or not look at. This is how Calixto was born, a film made by the most relevant colombian film director -Sergio Cabrera- which tells the reality of one displaced person, whose objective was to sensitize media, government and large companies to make their donations and thus build a bigger shelter where the refugees had a better situation.
Results 
· A film with $0 cost, made completely with donated talent and production.
· CALIXTO raised COP$1.300.000.000 during the premiere.
· 60 companies and national media joined the cause with donations.
· A bank donated the complex where today refugees are received.
· CALIXTO was screened during the 2016 Nobel Peace Prize ceremony.
