Dinner with Kay Pacha
Unfortunately in Peru it is common that many kids work in the streets to earn money to help their families to survive. In Cuzco you can see many girls like the main characters of the short working with tourists.
The main characters, Maribel and Rosmery are real street girls who migrated from peasant communities to work in the Central square of Cuzco with tourists.
The two main characters, Maribel and Rosmery did’nt have previous experience with acting.
Yes, basically I feel this is my mission and what I’d like to do. Since I have an indigenous family background. I started my career making documentaries about indigenous rights and the conflicts with mining corporations and the consequences they suffered in their healthes.
I love Cuzco, it is my favourite city in Peru !
