Arequipa, The White City

Jorge Bedoya was an amateur filmmaker from a well-to-do family in Arequipa. Starting from the 1940s, he used an unconventional format to film: Double 8mm. This project takes up of that recording format the concept of two parallel sequences of frames that interact with each other to depict, from a current perspective, the social class to which the archive belongs.
