The Anglo Peruvian Society will proudly present the screening of Pacificum, return to the ocean, a documentary film by Evelyn Merino Reyna and Henry Matarani, directed by Mariana Tschudi, on the 12th of April 2018 at the Prince Charles Cinema in the heart of London.
The screening will be followed by a discussion by a panel of experts and the director, Mariana Tschudi, about the cultural and environmental message of this film, its production and impact across Peru.
Pacificum is the first Peruvian documentary produced for release in Peru. Its unprecedented success lead it to win the Audience Award at the Festival de Cine de Lima PUCP in 2017 and to the establishment of the “Pacificum Movement”, empowering individuals to become ambassadors and protectors of the ocean. Netflix has bought the rights to the film and the Anglo Peruvian Society has been given the opportunity to premiere the film for the first time in the UK before it is released by this important network.

During the early years of the 21st century, four specialist scientists and lovers of the sea decided to make a series of journeys along the Pacific coast of Peru by air, land and beneath the waves, in order to document the intimate relationship that Peru has always had, and will continue to have, with the sea and the marine fauna it is home to.
The journeys revealed the ancient relationship founded upon respect and reverence which the ancient inhabitants of Peru maintained with their marine environment. The film aims to increase our understanding of the importance of the evolutionary history of our ocean, vestiges of which can still be found in certain parts of Peru’s desert coast. It also proudly explores those little-known submarine worlds where new species have been discovered in recent years, while showing how sustainable ways of interacting with our seas may ensure their future conservation.
All proceeds of the event will be in aid of ‘Conserving for Nature’ part of the SPDA (Peruvian Society for Environmental Rights) that will be organising a roadshow through the coasts of Peru screening the film free of charge in fishing villages, helping the locals discover the importance and richness of the unique environment they live in and inviting them to be part of the Pacificum Movement.
