PUKAÑAWI Center of Cultural Management

The Human Rights Film Archives at the PUKAÑAWI Center of Cultural Management in Bolivia are designed to nurture the expression of cultural diversity through film and human rights education. The archives are a place for audiovisual production and the distribution of human rights films. The center provides visual education about human and indigenous rights in Latin America to filmmakers and to the Bolivian public. The name PUKAÑAWI, which means 'red eye' in the Quechua language, is an homage to the center's roots in supporting indigenous cinema.
