Alex von Tunzelmann in conversation with Heiner Valdivia and Miguel Barreda Delgado

Film and history

Arequipa 2022, 

Alex von Tunzelmann is a British writer, filmmaker and historian. She wrote the screenplay for the feature film Churchill (2017) and several episodes of the series Medici. She is the author of four books, the most recent of which is the acclaimed Fallen Idols (2021), in which she analyses our forms of conserving and confronting the past as a society, particularly through the creation and destruction of monuments, examining the history of twelve statues, some famous, some infamous. In 2022, she presents the book Historia filmada which is the Spanish-language version of a compilation of columns, Reel History, which she wrote for The Guardian; the book combines her viewpoints as historian and filmmaker, offering a rich and diverse panorama of the history of film and the historical characters whose lives have been taken to the big screen. In conversation with the Arequipa poet and film fan Heiner Valdivia and the filmmaker Miguel Barreda Delgado.
