Beetwen memories Eudosia is still searching for her husband's remains in the highlands of Ayacucho, Lucero has been in prison for 25 years now for the crime of terrorism against the Peruvian state, and since 2009 the commandos of the counterinsurgency unit Chavin de Huantar recreate and commemorate their heroic military actions to save a nation from the threat of terrorism. Twelve years after the Peruvian Truth and Reconciliation Commission published its final report about the atrocities committed during the internal armed conflict (1980-2000), memories of this period seem more contested than ever. This film explores the complex legacies of twenty years of violence and war in Peru through practices of remembering. In three audio-visual pieces made in collaboration with relatives of the disappeared, insurgents of the Tupac Amaru Revolutionary Movement (MRTA) and members of the Armed Forces, this documentary aims for creating an on-screen dialogue between memories, which in practice remains elusive.

Martha-Cecilia Dietrich recently completed her PhD in Anthropology with Visual Media at the Granada Centre for Visual Anthropology at the University of Manchester and she is currently a post-doctoral scholar at the University of Berne. Her research interests are in the fields of political anthropology, the experience of violence, memory and its diverse articulations.

GIRL, ARE YOU MARRIED? Until the 1990s the Mexican Roma people were living a nomadic life and travelling around Mexico with their travelling movies.
Electricity, television and video records put their business to end. Some of them are still wandering, but the majority of them took an advantage of the favorable land prices in the growing urban agglomerations, built houses and settled down.
Do they feel at home in the houses they had built? They accepted that one can feel at home anywhere while he brings its world over.
The Roma people from Guadalajara have been living settled on the outskirts of the city of Guadalajara – district Zapopan for about 20 years. They form a community of aproximately five to six hundred of persons and usually present themselves as Gypsies or Hungarians. How much have to do with their European relatives? And what do they have in common with their Mexican neighbors ?
The documentary relates the daily life of these Roma community as it occurs in the suburbs of Guadalajara. Have these people managed to maintain their way of life based on the compliance with the traditions of their ancestors and respect for the membership in their lineage. And if yes, how? 

Felipe Moran has a Bachelor's Degree in Performing Arts (CECA, TELEVISA, Mexico) and Communication (Univ, Mexico) and Master's Degree in Film Production and Screenwriting (Form and plot, Madrid) and in Documentary Film (ECIB, Barcelona).
He worked as a filmmaker for various television channels – both Mexican and international – among them for example Univision.
