Peru — 2014 — 84 min — dir. Enrica Pérez
Spanish with English subtitles
Three women of vastly different ages and origins cope with life in three distinct regions of Peru: Eva, a young girl from the lush tropics of the Amazonian jungle, experiences a sexual awakening by way of a forbidden relationship with her uncle; Victoria, a wealthy socialite from Lima, suffers a terrible secret that renders her inner life as gray and melancholic as the city surrounding her; and Zoraida, an elderly peasant from a destitute village in the Andean Mountains, confronts her worst fears in the wake of the unexpected return of her estranged son. Three unconnected regions, three introverted women, three stories of discovery shaped by three geographies, societies and climates of the same fragmented country. A remarkably powerful yet understated cinematic triptych by one of Peru’s most promising film talents.
