Perkin is perhaps one of the places where the memory of the Salvadoran Civil War (1980-1992) is most tangible. This little town, situated on the north-eastern corner of El Salvador, was crucial for the guerrilla movement. Now, many of their inhabitants live by telling their “visitors” (they prefer this word instead of “turistas”) how it was back then.
In this short film we use material gathered during our first research trip to Perkin. Our resources are scarce at the time, but we wanted you to get a better idea of the stories we want to tell. There are many technical issues we want improve, like the audio or the quality of the image, and this is why your donations are so important: because through them we will be able to solve these and many other problems.
Feel free to share this video with all your friends, and don’t forget to mention that every donation, no matter how big or small, is really really needed!
