Censurados Film Festival: (In)visible Walls

April 21, 2018

In the lead up to the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 2018 the Censurados Film Festival, will undertake a special edition: (In)visible Walls. With the slogan "If the walls could talk”, the festival will use cinema and audiovisual as tools to give a voice to citizens and vulnerable groups affected by the presence of visible or invisible barriers. The festival will travel across the “Wall of Shame” in Lima, Chilcayo, Trujillo, Madre de Dios, Amazonas and Arequipa, and then outside of Peru to the US-Mexican border. This tour, between April and July 2018, will draw an estimated crowd of 12,000 visitors. Censurados Film Festival , dedicated to freedom of expression, aims to present films that have been censored in other parts of the world, and shows movies that are focused on human rights, like gender equality, human trafficking and oppression of indigenous people.

Censurados Film Festival is one of the 21 projects that were sponsored by Movies that Matter in 2017. Click here to read more about our other supported projects of this year.
