El Olvido (Oblivion)

Penn Museum Second Sunday Culture Films

Heddy Honigmann (2008)

The filmmaker introduces us to Highland Inca people, having relocated to the capitol city of Lima, Peru, who give a startlingly personal view to recent political history and the effects of emigration on their lives. This film is highly original and steeped in love, and should not be missed.

Discussion: Ann Farnsworth Alvear, Penn Latin American and Latino Studies
