HDPERU is an indigenous film collective founded by filmmaker Alvaro and Diego Sarmiento. We produce films focused on the defense of native peoples’ rights and environmental conservation in the Andes and the Amazon of Peru.
GREEN RIVER. THE TIME OF THE YAKURUNAS (2017) our feature debut premiered at the 67 Berlin Film Festival and the MoMA Doc Fortnight. The documentary is a poetic journey into the depths of the Amazon which explores the perception of time in three small villages.
MOTHERS OF THE LAND (2019), our second feature documentary premiered at the 69 Berlin Film Festival, 18th United Nations Forum on Indigenous Issues and the 64th Annual Conference of the Comparative and International Education Society. The film is related to food security, resilience, inclusive economies, and women farmer’s adaptive capacities facing climate change difficulties in the Andes.
