Chacra

In the Peruvian Amazon, the “Chacra” is the agricultural area where the jungle communities grow their essential fruit and veg.

This documentary was shot over three weeks in the Amazon in September 2017 during a slow journey by canoe that only covered 100 miles between two remote locations: Nueva Vida to Mazan. The aim was to maximise the amount of time spent with the local communities.

Part photographic, part non-narrative film, “Chacra” is an exhibition observing the people and life in these remote jungle communities

The Expedition was organised by NINTH WAVE GLOBAL, and the film was supported by the Highland Visual Arts Award Scheme.

Part of the “Short Films” screening.
