Soy Andina

Mfm1

"The dazzling story of two New York women raised in different worlds — an
immigrant folk dancer from the Andes, and a modern dancer from Queens, NY — who
journey to Peru in search of roots and dance.

After 15 years in New
York, Nelida Silva returns to her birthplace in the Andes to fulfill a lifelong
dream and host the fiesta patronal — an astonishing week of dance, music, and
ritual from Incan times. But Neli’s changed, and so has the village. What’s it
like to go back to the Andes when you’ve become a New Yorker?

Two years
later: Cynthia Paniagua, a dancer raised in Queens by a Peruvian mom, embarks on
her own Peruvian journey after meeting Neli — determined to "quench a burning
desire to know the real Peru, to unearth the mystery of the dances." Does she
find what she’s looking for? Well, you’ll have to see the movie!

Soy Andina
is an exuberant cross-cultural road trip, bursting with traditional music and
dance rarely seen outside the country. But the core story is intimate and
universal: a yearning for roots and connection in turbulent times…."
