Mi Chacra (My Land) 1x53, 1x96

Grand Prize Winner, 2010 Banff Mountain Film Festival

Raised in a farming village in the mountains of southern Peru, Feliciano works as a porter on the Inca Trail in hopes of some day taking his son to live in the city. Mi Chacra chronicles one year in his life, from the planting season to the harvest, and through a season of work on the Inca Trail. The film paints a vivid picture of Feliciano’s world, of the conflict between his love of the land and the work he learned from his father, and the desire to give his son what he sees as a better life in the city.
