Gonzalo Benavente and Grecia Barbieri in conversation with Carlos León Moya

The revolution and the land

Arequipa 2021, 

The landmark documentary La revolución y la tierra, directed by Gonzalo Benavente and co-written by Grecia Barbieri and the film’s director, tells the story of the Agricultural Reform of Juan Velasco Alvarado, 50 years after this important historical event. This documentary, which was released in 2019, was a success in Peru and gave rise to the book La revolución imaginada, which explores the making of the documentary, the historical documentation that the script was based on, and includes over 30 essays and articles about the subject matter of La revolución y la tierra written by major Peruvian figures, including Carlos León Moya, who will moderate this conversation.
