The film Between Memories explores the complex legacies of twenty years of violence and war in Peru through the ways people choose to remember it. In three audiovisual pieces made in collaboration with relatives of the disappeared, former insurgents in prison, and members of the armed forces, the director aims to create an on-screen dialogue between memories, which in practice remains elusive.

Martha-Cecilia Dietrich is a social anthropologist and filmmaker. She currently holds an assistant professor position at the University of Amsterdam. As part of her research activities, she made several award-winning documentary films on the politics of remembering violent conflicts, memory activism as well as human and environmental rights in Latin America.
