INKARRI: 500 YEARS OF RESISTANCE OF THE INCAN SPIRIT IN PERU
This documentary offers a profound exploration of the rich mythological and cultural heritage embedded within the indigenous Q’eros community. Nestled within the South Central Andes, at altitudes exceeding 5000 meters above sea level, the Q’eros people inhabit a unique territory straddling the boundary between the plateau and the Amazonian regions of Cuzco. This remarkable “nation” of Andean men and women has cultivated extraordinary ways of life, primarily centered around agriculture, farming, and a vibrant system of exchange. Astonishingly, they have managed to preserve their distinctive ethnic identity for over five centuries, navigating the turbulent currents of both colonial and republican eras. Today, as they steadfastly move forward, the Q’eros community offers a captivating glimpse into the enduring power of cultural heritage and the resilience of indigenous traditions.
