Del verbo amar

Del verbo amar is a sensorial, repressive, and thanatic documentary. It’s a first person account, a reconciliation attempt to try and overcome the pain and bad memories the director has carried with her for many years due to the complex relationship she has maintained with her mother. Ever since she was a child, Jiménez was eager to ma...

Días de Santiago

Josué Méndez’ film debut is to Peruvian cinema what Pizza, birra, faso was to Argentine cinema: the turning point between the past and the future, between an anchylosed rhetoric and a new realism attentive to the folklore, to the corporality of the urban landscape, to the sensibility of a generation that is in its late twenties....

Juliana

In one scene in Juliana, the young title character watches a soap opera and sees some absurd images that are far from the reality she knows. This moment reminds of scenes from Miss Universo en el Perú (also included in this section) where a contradiction is revealed and the audience is questioned socio-culturally. The style of Juliana was an...

Lima bruja. Retratos de la música criolla

One of the shots in Lima bruja features the voice over of the director telling us that “time was our worst enemy.” He’s referring to the fact that every creole musician who dies takes away a part of creole music along with him. The film would return to this issue over and over. Lima bruja allows us to discover the world of these o...

Me dicen Yovo

A film journal of his passage through Berlin, Me dicen Yovo (1995) reproduces the strangeness he felt when faced with a culture as different as it is distant. The friction results in a film that is narrated in a wayward and brittle tone.

Metal y melancolía

Metal & Melancholy is a middle class portrait of the city of Lima and the situation society was living in the early Nineties: years of extreme crisis, hyperinflation, and political violence. In this context, Honigmann finds a way to depict the complexity of those days with great simplicity. The director wanders through the streets of Lima on th...

Nadie especial

Meanwhile, Nadie especial (2013) raises a quechua-speaking voice and laments the new generation’s detachment from rural and Andean life. The uprooting contradicts the identity, and causes its disappearance. Although beautiful, Nadie especial is a hopeless film that cries. And makes us cry too.

Paraíso

Runan Caycu

The extreme close-up that opens Runan Caycu is demolishing: aesthetics and ethics interlace in order to become politics. In it, farmers’ union leader Saturnino Huillca expresses, in Quechua, the anger that drives him to undertake a tireless struggle for his social claims. This opening sketches a poetic subversive portrait that incites uprisin...

Solo un cargador

With Solo un cargador (2004) he instead assumes the hurting perspective of a carrier from Cusco who is ignored by a racially-ranked economic system. It’s a fragile film that turns his indignation into a penetrating cry for justice.
