UK Premiere/ Contactado

Aldo, a reclusive ex preacher, is enticed by a young man, who claims to be a follower, into reliving his past as the Contactee, the leader of a famous cult. After bringing Pelo malo to ¡Viva! 2014, Marité Ugas and Mariana Rondón have reunited in reversed roles as director and producer with this film inspired by extensive research on UFO cults in Peru. Contactado is a delightfully unusual drama that surprises and intrigues as we dive into the weird and wonderful world of cults, alien conspiracy theories and Andean legends that all swirl around the city of Lima. In times of social disruption and fundamentalism, people always look for something to believe in.

Short film screening alongside this feature film: Y así aparecieron los ríos

Long ago, before rivers existed in the Amazon, the god Kukama stood in his canoe, holding up his bow and arrows. His arrows flew one by one, creating vast winding rivers, which the Kukama people have tirelessly navigated to the present day. In a world where nature is prized, this animation takes viewers into the magical and beautiful world of the Amazon region, reminding us of our sacred connection to water.

This is the debut animation film from artist Miguel Araoz, born in 1977 in Cusco, Peru. Currently, he is co-directing his first feature film with Stephanie Boyd, called Karuara, la gente del río, which deals with the enchanted world of the spirits that live under the rivers of the Amazon, and the struggle of the Kukama people to save them.

Screening before the feature film Contactado.
