I’m Still

  • Directed by Javier Corcuera
  • Peru, 2013, 120 mins., Spanish/Quechua/Shipibo

Corcuera’s documentary is more than a celebration of Peru’s rich musical heritage. Through these diverse musicians’ personal stories (some of them filmed for the first time) and their music, Corcuera explores issues of identity and nationality. Divided in three parts—Lima, Ayacucho, and the Amazon—I’m Still captures some of the country’s most beautiful and distant spots without turning its back to some of its most pressing social and economic problems. Winner of the Documentary Prize, Lima Film Festival.
