Horror in the Andes is a film about three friends and their journey making a horror movie in the small town of Ayacucho in the Peruvian Andes. This documentary film is based on research conducted by Martha-Cecilia Dietrich at the University of Bern. It explores how Andean filmmakers have resorted to horror fiction as a means to revive a pre-colonial past and their desire to make cinema for local audiences. Martha's film looks at the genre of horror films as both artistic practice and social critique.
