Naro Matsigenka Book – Film Documentary

Since a few years I got involved in the production of a Film Documentary about Peruvian Communities in the jungle of south America . As a part of the team, that have visited the natural reserve in south east peru, in the region of Cusco. I got the chance to visit and experience how the people live in the middle of the Jungle, with out a road or any other kind of communication, the only connection is through the river, and the multiple affluents.

The Pontificia Universidad Catolica del Peru, was running a huge research about the use of the natural resources in the jungle of Peru by the Matsigenka community, during the last 5 years. The scientific work and design of the research was made by University teacher Martha Rodriguez. Together with her team, they have visited periodically the different areas around Cusco region, to collect as much information they could. I joined the crew the last years of the project to film a documentary and take pictures for their upcoming book. After the travel phase, we got the commission to produce together with Wildschnitt Film & Photography the design of the book and organize more than 6000 pictures taken by the communities through 5 years. It was a long and hard work, but it paid off. I’m really glad to have the chance to produce such a interesting and important book for the university.

From this Month you can find the book at the university’s library & for buy it, pls go to bookstore ” El Virrey” in Lima, Peru.
