So, your dad has been kidnapped by a rebel group and you are forced to negotiate for his release… what do you do? Well, if you're Miles Hargrove, you make a video diary. Twenty-five years later, with the gift of hindsight, he returned to these diaries to tell this incredible story. In 1994, the FARC (Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia) kidnapped journalist Tom Hargrove from the family home in Cali, Columbia, leaving his wife and two sons to pay the ransom. With the help of their friends, including a hostage negotiator, FBI agent and their 18-year-old neighbor, the group navigated conditions for his expected release. Their story, impeccably captured by a then state-of-the-art Video8 camcorder, shows a family in crisis, yearning for normalcy and finding moments of hope and kindness amidst the horror. The film PROOF OF LIFE, with Meg Ryan, Russell Crowe and David Morse as the father who is kidnapped, was the dramatized version of this event. MIRACLE FISHING presents the real story, presented by the kidnapped victim Tom Hargrove's son!
Running Time: 104 Minutes
Q&A via link to especially pre-recorded Zoom for PJDS with director Miles Hargrove, moderated by Tom Needham, host of Tom Needham’s The Sounds of Film on WUSB radio.
