In October of 2015, small team known as DOCUPERU set out to collect stories told by and for the residents of coastal Peru.
From this series of free workshops in audiovisual communication, spanning the towns of Lobitos, La Islilla, Sechura, Santa Rosa, and San José, 15 short documentaries, 30+ photographic essays, 1 zine, and 4 murals were produced.
THE CARAVAN is a celebration of this collective collaboration and the stateside premiere of 5 short films and photography. All of the content was created by the residents with the help of a handful of filmmakers, photographers, and muralists known as DOCUPERU. From the memories and realities of the participants, we are shown how pollution, climate change, and community fortitude have become daily experiences in this shifting landscape.
