Friday on Worldview:

Allan Gomez has been training health practitioners in the Choco area of Colombia. The Choco is the poorest region of Colombia. It’s remote and difficult to access due to  constant flooding. Gomez tells Worldview about his experience and explains why the area has been plagued by constant poverty.

Then, global citizen Narimon Safavi plans your global weekend. We’ll be learning Ecuadorian folk dance and heading to an international festival in Wheeling where you can sample Korean wine and watch Serbian dance.

And finally, Worldview film contributor Milos Stehlik gives us his take on Todd Solondz’s latest film, Dark Horse. Director Todd Solondz joins the conversation and tells us what inspired the film.
