Please join Quechua at NYU and the Runasimi Outreach Committee for our first Quechua Night of the Year: a screening of "Eyes of the Journey," a film by Rodrigo Otero Heraud with Hipólito Peralta Ccama, Produced by Maja Tillmann Salas.

The film narrates the journey of the "paq'o" (healer) Hipólito Peralta Ccama through different parts of the Peruvian sierra, attending to the call of the people and nature. Otero uses this journey to compose a complex metaphor of the human condition from the landscapes of the Andean world and its powerful imaginary, in a documentary that stretches the limits of the genre to lead to what might be considered an offering or petition to life.

Co-sponsored by the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies and the Department of Cinema Studies at NYU.

Free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
