From Quito: THE IMPORTANCE OF THE DOCUMENTARY FESTIVAL EDOC

  • Whatsapp

In today's program, we look at the current documentary festival taking place in Ecuador, EDOC. It presents hundreds of films on different topics: the negotiations behind the peace agreement in Colombia, Dilma Rousseff's parliamentary coup in Brazil, the horrors of the genocide against the indigenous in Guatemala, the fight to end discrimination against transgenders, among others. But one topic closer to home, is migration. To discuss this we have Dario Aguirre, an Ecuadorian filmmaker, who is presenting a film about his own journey as a migrant.
