PeruRail presents “My Community Film” for children and adults in Cusco towns
The program presents a series of short films that promote positive attitudes towards identity and culture.
Over 2,500 children and adults in the towns of Occururo, Markju, Aparquilla, Rahuanqui, Yuncachimpa, Suttoc, Cayocca, Tinta, Huilloc, and Pomatales, in Cusco, enjoyed an afternoon of excitement and fantasy with the “My Community Film” program, offered by PeruRail.
The program, which is part of Peru Rail’s social responsibility program (RSE), looks to foster social inclusion and cultural exchange through the showing of movies that spread messages of positive identity and culture in local communities, through an evening of healthy entertainment.
With this in mind, the films selected spanned a diverse catalogue, with short films in Quechua about how to care for the environment, acting with humility, comradeship, friendship, family, valuing parents, and the responsibility of children. In each village, a designated showing space was arranged with warm lighting and blankets in order to create an ambiance similar to that of a movie theatre. The organizers also provided guests with popcorn, cotton candy, and warm beverages.
PeruRail has been developing a series of social responsibility projects that focus on encouraging integration and cultural identity, protection of the environment, inclusive business models, and educational initiatives directed towards local communities in the company’s operational areas across Cusco, Arequipa, and Puno.
