Los Santísimos Hermano
The Most Holy Brotherhood is about a mysterious Messianic sect formed by peasants who fled La Violencia in Colombia during the 1950s and established an enclave in the mountains of southern Tolima.
Its members have their own dialect and consider everything to be “holy”, except for the right side of the body, which they mortify by covering it with sackcloth, since it is the cursed side.
This group rejects every element of consumer society, established institutions, the State, the Church, and political parties. They believe in the Apocalypse and spread its doctrine, proclaiming the end of the world in pilgrimages through the towns and villages. Many of their leaders have been persecuted and killed.
