HAKUCHU MUNAYTA by Augusto Zegarra

The official jury, which includes Andrea Stavenhagen, from the organizing team of Mestizo Lab (Mexico); Hebe Tabachnik, co-founder and vice president of Lokro Productions, Inc. (Argentina); Rémi Bonhomme, artistic director of the Marrakech International Film Festival (France), and Josué Mendez, artistic director of the Lima Film Festival PUCP, have unanimously decided to give the award to the Peruvian film Hakuchu Munayta, directed by Augusto Zegarra, and produced by Claudia Chávez and Paloma Iturriaga.

Hakuchu Munayta tells the story of a young indigenous man who is trying to prevent his language from disappearing. Fernando Valencia is a voice artist from Cusco, who dreams of dubbing El Rey León in Quechua. This quest to contact Disney, accompanied by his son Dylan, will allow him to evaluate his identity and commitment to his language and culture. Along the way, Fernando will question his role as a father and the cultural heritage he leaves behind for his little son.
