Welcome to the second Peruvian Contemporary Film Showcase in New York City, celebrating the exhilarating journey of fifty years of modern Peruvian cinema. This year the program will be dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the scientific discovery of the Inca citadel of Machu Picchu in Cusco by North American explorer Hiram Bingham. We will also honor the life and work of Cusco photographer Martin Chambi.
This second showcase is curated and produced by the photographer and filmmaker Lorry Salcedo Mitrani, with the collaboration of the Consulate General of Peru in New York and the generous support of Mrs. Muriel and Mr. Leonardo Rosen and Ms. Martha Meier Miro Quesada.
Additional support has been received from the Spanish Cultural Center of Peru and the Center for American Studies in Lima (CEA).
This selection of 11 successful films from the last fifty years (documentaries, shorts and feature-length films) shows the creative, ethnographic and geographic diversity of our culture, as reflected in cinematographic art in Peru.
