Héctor Gálvez

The armed combat of the "Shining Path" began in Ayacucho, in the Peruvian Andes, and claimed around 70,000 victims. The innumerable stories of the people who were killed and disappeared remain largely unexplored. Filmmaker Héctor Gálvez travels with a theatre group through the villages. A play that talks about the missing in the years of political violence in Peru, is taken to be presented to Andean communities. In each village, what was fiction will be confronted with reality, where it touches on suppressed memories and traumas.
