The Peruvian film “Retablo”, directed by Álvaro Delgado-Aparicio and which has won 32 international awards, has been chosen by the Ministry of Culture as the Peruvian precandidate to represent the country at the Oscar and Goya 2020 Awards.
“It is an honor to represent Peru in these awards,” Delgado-Aparicio, the filmmaker, told RPP Noticias.
There are 130 countries that are going to be promoting their movies and Retablo will do the same, Delgado-Aparicio told RPP Noticias.
As for other international movies that will be competing for the same awards there are “Spider” (Chile), “Pain and glory” (Spain) and “Monkeys” (Colombia).
“The Quechua film, starring Magaly Solier and Amiel Cayo, summoned more than 59,000 people to Peruvian movie theaters. It tells the story of Segundo Páucar, a young man who is instructed by his father in the art of altarpieces”, RPP Noticias explained.
Retablo premiered in Peru on May 16, 2019, and remained on the billboards for seven weeks.
