The End of the World

The End of the World is a short fictional documentary, to be produced throughout 2024 in collaboration with Shiwa Films, that builds on the research findings of Moving Mountains. It dramatizes the history of the Yungay landslide, which caused around 8000 deaths and left around 400 survivors, from the perspective of local adolescents. Its principal aims are to facilitate skills-acquisition in research, communication, and filmmaking among young people in Peru; to foster a dynamic, youth-facing educational programme that preserves memories of the 1970 landslide; and to promote intergenerational knowledge exchange and solidarity as a result of this.
