Horror in the Andes is a behind-the-scenes documentary that follows the process of making a horror movie in Ayacucho, Peru. Directed by audio-visual anthropologist Martha-Cecilia Dietrich, it explores how Andean filmmakers use the horror genre as a means to revive stories of a pre-colonial past. Appropriating a global cinematic language to tell local (hi)stories of violent pasts, our attention is drawn to contemporary social issues like ethnicity and gender. Infused with warmth and affection, Horror in the Andes pays testament to the craft of filmmaking and its community.
