Between Memories

 

(Between Memories) Director: Martha-Cecilia Dietrich, PE, 2015, Spanish, Quechua version / Czech and English subtitles, 34 min

Eudosia is still searching for her husband's remains in the highlands of Ayacucho, Lucero has been in prison for 25 years now for the crime of terrorism against the Peruvian state, and since 2009 the commandos of the counterinsurgency unit Chavin de Huantar recreate and commemorate their heroic military actions to save a nation from the threat of terrorism. Twelve years after the Peruvian Truth and Reconciliation Commission published its final report about the atrocities committed during the internal armed conflict (1980-2000),

memories of this period seem more contested than ever. This film explores the complex legacies of twenty years of violence and war in Peru through practices of remembering. In three audio-visual pieces made in collaboration with relatives of the disappeared, insurgents of the Tupac Amaru Revolutionary Movement (MRTA) and members of the Armed Forces, this documentary aims for creating an on-screen dialogue between memories, which in practice remains elusive.

Martha-Cecilia Dietrich recently completed her PhD in Anthropology with Visual Media at the Granada Centre for Visual Anthropology at the University of Manchester and she is currently a post-doctoral scholar at the University of Berne. Her research interests are in the fields of political anthropology, the experience of violence, memory and its diverse articulations.
