Las Hijas De Nantu
The General Consulate of Peru in London presents a free screening of Las Hijas De Nantu (2018), a documentary, directed by Willy Guevara, about the ancient traditions of female empowerment amongst the Awajún people of the Peruvian Amazon. Filmed in the Awajún language with English subtitles.

In the tradition of the Awajún culture was the belief that a matriarchy existed, organized around the supreme deity Nantu (the Moon). This was destroyed by the men when they became warriors and established polygamy. Since then women have tried to recover their lost dignity through various mechanisms, poisoning being one of them.

Doors open at 17.00, for a 18.00 start.

Refreshments will be available in our licensed cafe/bar.


Free event.
