Director Javier Corcuera
Kachkaniraqmi is a Quechua expression that means ‘I continue being, I still am’. Javier Corcuera’s documentary, I Still Am (Kachkaniraqmi), invites us to delve deeply into very unique and distinct worlds in this celebration of Peru’s rich musical heritage. A tale divided in three parts – Ayacucho (the Andes), Amazonia (the jungle) and the Coast (Lima, the city) – where they continue to sing in their native language and preserve a unique way of playing their instruments. I Still Am captures the country’s most beautiful and distant locations without turning its back to some of its most pressing social and economic problems.
