  1. Climas

    Enrica Pérez / !Viva Mujeres! Feature Showcase / Peru/Colombia / 2014 / Drama / 84 mins
    Three unrelated women in Peru are affected by life-altering experiences. A premature sexual experience between a girl, on the verge of womanhood,and a mysterious visitor reveals a complex and discomforting power dynamic. A secret from the past threatens the stability of a woman who imagined herself to have overcome painful circumstances. The return of an estranged son has unexpected effects on his mother. These three fragmented narratives are different in scope, landscape and climate, but united by their shared admiration for the fortitude of women.

  2. Disruption

    Pamela Yates / !Viva Mujeres! Feature Showcase / Brazil / Colombia / Peru / USA / 2014 / Documentary / 85 mins
    A band of Latin American activist-economists sets out to reduce inequality in the region, with a model that places women at the center of the drive for social change. Collaborating with governments, big banks, and women marginalized by poverty in Peru, Colombia, and Brazil, they spread financial literacy horizontally; using digital education tools and innovative strategies for financial inclusion. Through the program, the women become empowered economic and political agents in their communities, leading the process of societal transformation from the bottom up. 3 millions lives have already been changed. If the model is taken to scale, can 20 million women upend a continent?
