21.03.2004 to 28.03.2004


Directed by:

After three years of war during which he learned only to kill, a man returns to civilian life in Lima. In an original and powerful style that describes the character’s inner world and the terrible social reality all at once, this film recounts a man’s desperate resistance not only to the violence of society, but to his own inner violence as well. The unfolding of the narration shows that this violence is not a fatality.

A Thousand Months
Directed by:

In two hours the film goes through an entire palette of themes of life, with a good dose of tenderness, humanity, humour and enuineness. Moreover, the political and social reality in which the film takes place is perfectly evoked by the director.
