We have invited filmmaker Fernando Vílchez to curate a series of UK premiere short films around his work I Can Only Show you the Color; commemorating the bicentennial of Peru’s independence in 2021. 


“In July, 2021 Peru will be two hundred years old as a sovereign nation, and yet the struggles of the past remain more current than ever. Cinema has not been excluded to this social concern.
The documentary field became the freest and most radical terrain of our creativity.

This selection of recent short films raises a self-portrait of a country that is always convulsed, contradictory but, at the same time,
fiercely optimistic.” Fernando Vílchez 

1 hour 26 min
