TRAPPED WOMEN – An experimental short film denouncing the extreme violence against women in Peru.

Everyday we hear the same news: “Burnt”, “Disfigured”, “Beaten”, “Raped”, “Murdered”.

The motive?

Very simple: Having been born as women in Peru. Only in 2018, there were more than 146 known cases of femicide in Peru. The preferred form of murder is suffocation or strangulation.

Four out of 10 victims were killed in this way; and three out of 10, stabbed with a knife or a sharp weapon.

Who carries out these crimes?

87.5% of victims of femicide were murdered by their partner or ex-partner. The closest people to the victim perpetuate these crimes, and many other forms of violence toward women that are normalized, romanticized or treated with impunity by society.

What should we do and what can we do?

A political decision is not enough, it is necessary to generate a change of mentality of this machismo rooted in the majority of Peruvians. This has to stop! Enough is enough!

 

 

TRAPPED WOMEN is an experimental short film that exposes the extreme violent situation against women in Peru as well as the image of the country. The short film uses dance, performance, music, cinematography, and art with the objective of raising people’s awareness of this social problem.

The story shows us a woman, born into a completely white world full of light. Through a dance she begins to discover the world, but in her life she faces a harsh reality of extreme violence including rape and murder. Her white world begins to turn red, drowning in blood, coagulating into the shape and colors of the Peruvian flag.

 

 

A film filled with powerful sensations and visual symbols, we want to appeal to the emotional side of the audience to generate impact, dialogue, and motivate change. This is happening in Peru, women are murdered because they are women.

 

 

We need to talk about this social problem. If we don’t, these voices will continue to be silenced.

 

 

Our first objective is to generate awareness and to contribute to a change of mentality that is so necessary.

We seek to denounce violence against women and to generate dialogue, conversation and awareness on this social problem. From my own experience as a woman and as a filmmaker, I can contribute to change our social reality.

We want to screen the film in educational institutions, colleges, cultural centers, and film clubs. In this way we can contribute to research, round-table discussions, and conferences on the subject.

Internationally, we want also to promote Peruvian cinema and the use of cinematographic language to deal with social problems.

We know change does not happen overnight, but being able to show it, discuss it and denounce it are small steps that will contribute to long-term change.

 

 

For this project to become a reality, we need your full support. Each contribution of any size is very valuable to us. If you want to help us, you can donate on this platform. We will be very grateful.
