Les États généraux du film documentaire 2019 Viewing experiences By the Name of Tania

By the Name of Tania
Mary Jiménez, Bénédicte Liénard
2019 - Belgique/Pérou - Couleur - 85'

Based on testimony, this hybrid film tells the story of Tania, a teenager forced into prostitution in the gold mining region of Peru. Tania recalls her capture following false promises of work and the progressive loss of her identity. The camera takes us from the jungle to the bars which were the sites of her exploitation. The fever of the gold rush combined with the destruction of the environment resound in the film like an allegory of life sacrificed on the altar of capitalism.
