WATITA tells the story of a Quechua couple, Katy and Victor, who are on their way to the ominous Mining City above the mountains. The couple meets Watita, a young girl who helps her grandfather run an old hostel. After the couple decides to spend the night there, Katy discovers Victor's true reasons for wanting to take this sudden trip. Now she must weigh the importance of her various loyalties—to her husband, her tradition and her own principles—under a new light. In the director’s native Peru, WATITA had a successful screening at the 18th Lima Film Festival and received an Honorable Mention at Filmocorto 2013.

  Nadie especial Nobody Special

Juan Alejandro Ramírez

Peru, Human Rights/Social Issue Documentary, 201323 min, 16mm, ColorQuechua with English subtitles

 

A woman fights a losing battle: one can't be poor and still want to stay among the familiar, the everyday, where one was born and raised. She can only observe, with a mix of confusion and rage, how her community is becoming deserted and sad – its children displaced to far off, ugly places. NADIE ESPECIAL is about any place where the cards seem to be forever stacked against the powerless. But with great lyricism, it also shows the resolve of some individuals to challenge their fate and restore their dignity, even if that decision furthers their isolation as they are pushed toward a last frontier. The short film was the Grand Jury Winner at the 28th Mar del Plata International Film Festival and has screened at prestigious festivals world wide.
