For 20 years since their foundation, Docuperu has produced more than 350 documentary films in Peru and other Latin American countries.
They have mantained close relationships with the local people and their history when making films.
During their residency stay in Fukuoka, Docuperu plans to create 4 short documentary films with appreciation towards memory, people, traditions and customs in Fukuoka. 3 of the short documentary films will be created by young students majoring in cinema, media studies or visual arts using DOCUPERU´s methodology. In addition they would also share their unique experiences and methodologies about participatory documentary workshops with the students.
