Research output: Non-textual formDigital or Visual Products


Horror in the Andes is a film about three friends and their adventurous 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, in which she explores how Peruvian filmmakers have resorted to horror fiction as a means to render and discuss contemporary social issues with local audiences. Martha's film looks at the genre of horror films as both artistic practice and social critique. It follows a horror film in the making and tells the deeply moving story of a friendship that is held together by a passion they share for filmmaking.
