Cineclub: Madeinusa

An isolated village in the heart of Peru turns itself into madness and unruliness the day and a half between Good Friday and Resurrection Sunday, as Christ is dead and cannot see people’s sins. With this set-up, the film becomes a exquisite blend of true facts with fiction, Spanish with Aymara, Good and Evil, comedy and drama, in which only one of the characters is played by a professional actor.

Andrés, Peruvian, member of Latin American House’s Management Committee, and Raúl, anthropologist, friend of the production team of the film, joined us in a very interesting debate on a number of issues the film arises (isolation, religious fervor, traditions, incest…) and on the movie itself.

A must-see.

(And a must-talk-about.)
