Filmed in location in Cajamarca and Lima, Peru. This is a sensitization piece designed for the campaign “Maxima Is Not Alone” developed by Amnesty International to gather support for the cause of Peruvian farmer Maxima Acuña. Maxima is a subsistence farmer in the Peruvian northern highlands of Cajamarca who stood up for her right to peacefully live on her own property, a plot of land fiercely sought by Newmont and Buenaventura Mining companies.
