Peruvian Showcase to Honor the Late Roberto Guerra in NY

The New York Peruvian Film Showcase has announced the lineup for its fifth edition which will feature an homage to the life and work of the late New York-based Peruvian documentary film director, producer and cinematographer Roberto Guerra (pictured), who died at the beginning of this year.

Guerra's films are international in scope and of timeless significance.  Major networks in more than thirty-five countries have broadcast over 30 of his films and many of them have been featured in international festivals in New York, Edinburgh, London, Cannes and Los Angeles. The tribute includes the screening of the documentary short film Roberto Guerra, a Life by Lorry Salcedo Mitrani.

The 2014 edition of the New York Peruvian Film Showcase (NYPFS) will be dedicated to Peruvian archeology and will take place from September 16-19, at Instituto Cervantes in midtown Manhattan. This year's lineup includes the award-winning film The Mute / El mudo, from directors Daniel and Diego Vega; Josué Méndez's Gods / Dioses and the short film Loxoro, winner of the Teddy Award at the Berlin Film Festival, directed by Claudia Llosa (The Milk of Sorrow) who will travel to New York to present her film.
