Miss Universe in Peru
A film by Grupo Chaski
Peru, 1986, 32 minutes, BW, 16mm/DVD, Subtitled
Order No. W99122
Shot during the Miss Universe contest hosted by Peru in 1982, this documentary juxtaposes the glamour of the pageant with the realities of Peruvian women’s lives, while providing a critique of multinational corporate interest in the universal commodification of women. Grupo Chaski is a collective engaged in video production in Peru and is deeply committed to women’s equality and participation in society.


    “Miss Universe in Peru provides a haunting contrast that is not easily forgotten.”
    Karen Ranucci
