Manuel Cornejo Chaparro and Andrea Díaz Cardona

The rubber tree holocaust

Venue: Universidad Continental

Screening of the BBC Mundo documentary Los sobrevivientes del holocausto del caucho en Colombia, which portrays a not very well remembered part of our recent past. It is a story of enslavement and annihilation, which reduced the population of La Correra (Colombia) from 100 thousand to 64 people. In this conversation, the journalist and filmmaker Andrea Díaz Cardona and the director of the Centro Amazónico de Antropología y Aplicación Práctica, Manuel Cornejo Chaparro, will talk about the topics addressed in the film in the context of the role Peru played, particularly Iquitos, in the rubber business.
