Horror in the Andes

Horror in the Andes tells the story of a friendship that is held together by a shared passion for filmmaking. Set in the small town of Ayacucho we follow three life-long friends and film enthusiasts during their adventure of making a horror movie. This observational documentary explores how indigenous filmmakers have appropriated the genre of horror fiction to articulate notions of Andean identity and the desire to be agents of their own history.
