Documentaire

Voor het maken van de documentaire laat ik me inspireren door verschillende documentaires. Hier
vind je een verzameling van boeiende documentaires die betrekking hebben op Peru. Daarnaast vind je een aantal documentaires die mij persoonlijk hebben geïnspireerd als agogisch werker en bruikbare tips voor het maken van een documentaire.


- De documentaire: "El olvido" (“de vergetelheid”)

Heddy Honigmann schetst in ‘El Olvido’ een indringend portret van de talloze inwoners van Lima die zich aan de onderkant van de samenleving bevinden. Straatkinderen, zwervers, obers en kleine middenstanders komen aan het woord en vertellen aan de hand van persoonlijke anekdotes over de politieke geschiedenis van Peru.


- De documentaire: "Tocar y Luchar" ("Play and Fight").

José Antonio Abreu is a conductor, composer and economist. 30 years ago he developed the idea of combining social work with classical music, in order to offer children from poor neighbourhoods an alternative to life on the streets. More than five million people live in the impromptu neighbourhoods of Caracas alone, half of whom are children. The settlers in these illegal suburbs have left their mark on the cityscape, and reflect the social reality: behind the glass palaces and banks, shacks made of red brick and boards crowd the slopes as far as the eye can see. Everyday life in the ‘barrios’ is marked by violence in the streets, corrupt police and gang warfare. Only a few find their way out of these circumstances: work is hard to come by even with vocational training, and the public schools do not adequately prepare students for university entrance exams. These structures create a system of poverty, social exclusion and poor prospects.

The children are integrated into orchestras from the very beginning, and the older children pass their knowledge down to the younger ones. Abreu’s intention and philosophy is concealed behind this simple concept: for him an orchestra is first and foremost about togetherness, a place where children learn to listen to each other and to respect one another. The purpose of the work is the integration of the children into a united social structure, in which each individual assumes responsibility and contributes to a commonly achieved result.

There are also music groups for children aged two and older, choirs that integrate disabled children, and orchestras set up in juvenile detention centres. These developments have created hope in a country where 80 percent of the population lives in precarious social circumstances and 30 percent are under 15 years of age.
After the death of his father, a young journalist named Chino finds refuge in the world of street clowns. His relationship with the clowns leads him to overcome the anger toward his deceased father and to reconcile with his mother. Based on Daniel Alarcón’s short story Ciudad de Payasos, this short film was awarded the 2009 Best Fiction Film and Best Short Film at the Latin American Film Festival in Lima.


- De documentaire: "De ollas y sueños" ("Cooking Up Dreams")

Could it be that an entire nation is represented through its kitchen? Crossing air, land and sea, De ollas y sueños explores Peru’s gastronomic revolution for an answer. From the most humble family kitchens to high-end restaurants, this documentary finds that Peru's cuisine is deliciously integrating with its people who have historically been marked by ethnic and economic differences. Renowned chefs such as Gastón Acurio, Ferrán Adrià, Juan Mari Arzak and Bernardo Roca Rey share their views alongside unsung chefs, who also dream of Peru's cuisine as a motor of development. Audience Award winner at Festival Filmar en América Latina (Geneva, Switzerland).


- De documentaire: "
Payasos" ("Clowns")

After the death of his father, a young journalist named Chino finds refuge in the world of street clowns. His relationship with the clowns leads him to overcome the anger toward his deceased father and to reconcile with his mother.

- De documentaire:
“Children of the sun”

Since its founding in 2000, The School of Dance Kausachun Peru has the task to raise awareness of our folklore through our dances, coast, mountains and forests and the preservation of our culture in the United States, one of the special features have our school is the diversity among its members as we see young people from Bolivia, Venezuela, Mexico, USA, etc, all showing the love for the art without borders, in 2009 led to the idea of the documentary "Children of the sun" and the meaning into their lives,the feelings and challenges that aroused in being part of this group, a documentary as part of the graduation at the University of Utah 2010.


- De documentaire: "Some kind of sadness"

Waarom zit er altijd iets verdrietigs in de blik van Peruvianen? Het antwoord is voor een deel terug te voeren op de Olympische Spelen van 1936 in Berlijn, en wat er gebeurde toen het voetbalteam van Peru er de kwartfinale tegen Oostenrijk won. Ramírez vervolgt de film met sprekende beelden en beschouwende overpeinzingen over het verdriet dat op een of andere manier in de geschiedenis van Peru verweven zit. Armoede, onrecht, verlies en marginalisatie tekenen de cultuur en de mensen lijken niks anders meer te verwachten. Deze associatieve en poëtische film reflecteert niet alleen op het verdriet, maar ook op de kracht en creativiteit waarmee de mensen zich staande weten te houden.


De documentaire: “Born into Brothels”

Born into Brothels is the winner of the 77th annual Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. A tribute to the resiliency of childhood and the restorative power of art, Born into Brothels is a portrait of several unforgettable children who live in the red light district of Calcutta, where their mothers work as prostitutes. Zana Briski, a New York-based photographer, gives each of the children a camera and teaches them to look at the world with new eyes.


- De documentaire: "Nederland help: het harde leven van straatkinderen in Bolivia"

Santa Cruz is de grootste stad van Bolivia. Er wonen meer dan een miljoen mensen. Naast de honger en grote armoede komt er in de gezinnen veel lichamelijk en fysiek geweld voor. Vooral kinderen zijn daarvan de dupe, veel van hen vluchten al op zeer jonge leeftijd voor de uitzichtloze situatie thuis. In de stad zwerven meer dan 10.000 kinderen rond. Het leven op straat is keihard en om dat te kunnen verdragen beginnen vrijwel alle kinderen met lijm snuiven en door de jaren heen mondt dat uit in het gebruik van zwaardere drugs, seksueel misbruik en prostitutie.


- Ted.com: Ken Robinson: says schools kills creativity 

Why don't we get the best out of people? Sir Ken Robinson argues that it's because we've been educated to become good workers, rather than creative thinkers. Students with restless minds and bodies -- far from being cultivated for their energy and curiosity -- are ignored or even stigmatized, with terrible consequences. "We are educating people out of their creativity," Robinson says. It's a message with deep resonance. Robinson's TEDTalk has been distributed widely around the Web since its release in June 2006. The most popular words framing blog posts on his talk? "Everyone should watch this."
