EL NUEVO MUNDO

El Nuevo Mundo (The New World in Spanish) is a experimental documentary made in collaboration with artist and illustrator Elena Tognoli in 2007. Entirely filmed in a children’s refuge in Zapallal (outskirts of Lima in Peru), the film was made to support Project Peru‘s activities. Project Peru is a small, totally voluntary UK-based charity offering food, clothes, shelter, education, and fun to those who live in the children’s refuge in the desert shanty towns of Lima, and giving ongoing and practical support to those who live in extreme poverty in the local community.
