Horror in the Andes is a film about three friends and their journey making a horror movie in the small town of Ayacucho in the Peruvian Andes. This documentary  film is based on research conducted by Martha-Cecilia Dietrich at the University of Bern, in which she explores how Peruvian filmmakers have resorted to horror fiction as a means to render and discuss contemporary social issues with local audiences. Martha's film looks at the genre of horror films as both artistic practice and social critique. It follows a horror film in the making and tells the story of a friendship held together by a passion for filmmaking.
