Classes today for the student ambassadors of Future Voices International were different as we have arranged a visit to MALI, Museo de Arte de Lima to view the Peruvian film ‘Paraiso’ shot on the outskirts of Lima in a very similar community as Pachacutec. Not only did the students get the opportunity to watch this great piece of cinema but also the opportunity to have a Q&A session with the director ‘Hector Galvez’ himself.
All the students of Future Voices International were extremely excited by this opportunity and made the most of the experience by asking many question and for tips in order to help them with their own short social films they are in the process of creating. For many of the students this was there first time visiting a gallery or cinema, Pachacutec is located on the outskirts of Lima over 2hrs away from centre, and many of the participant’s families don’t have the financial ability or time to afford similar visits.
Future Voices Intl is extremely happy with the impact this excursion has had on the individuals, both creatively and socially. The trip has bought all the participants closer together and has focused their creative thinking which will hopefully help the participants create stunning works of cinema.
