PISCO SIN FRONTERAS is an NGO based in Pisco, Peru.
Pisco suffered major devastation from an earthquake in 2007.
PSF is an organisation which has been manly involved with the reconstruction of houses and community centres, but is now shifting to a more long term/social sustainable approach.
We had initially been asked to produce a documentary about the organisation, but to be honest they already had an awesome documentary made one year ago, all focused on the volunteers experience. So we decided to shift the point of view and thought about telling the story of locals who had been helped by PSF.
Pisco is a even poorer reality than Cusco, people here don't really have much. Most of them are still living in tents and the crime rate is reasonably high. However we had the chance to meet incredible people here and even if I have to say this has been very hard, it also has been extremely rewarding.
