The Peruvian Ministry of Culture recently announced that Henry Vallejo’s film Powerful Chief (Manco Cápac) is Peru’s official Oscar entry for Best International Feature Film at the 94th Academy Awards taking place on March 27, 2022 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. The film has received several accolades and is among the favorites on the shortlist in the race for the Oscar, per Variety Magazine's 2022 Oscars predictions.
Filmed in Spanish and Quechua in the southern city of Puno, Powerful Chief tells the story of Elisban (Jesus Luque), a young man who migrates from the countryside to the city of Puno in search of work only to find himself homeless and penniless in a city that seemingly ignores his plight with fierce indifference. Elisban survives by taking small, unstable jobs that lead to nowhere but despite the adversities, he perseveres and continues on his journey with his dignity intact.
Powerful Chief, Vallejo’s second feature film, is ten years in the making and much like the protagonist in the film, Vallejo’s story is one of perseverance and the will to win. “It’s a story that anyone can relate to, and the central theme is ultimately perseverance, just as was the case with the filming,” explains Vallejo, who had to overcome several obstacles that delayed production every step of the way. “In the end, the film aims to tell a simple, socially relevant, challenging story that pays tribute to the Incas.”
Powerful Chief is a Pioneros Producciones production distributed by V&R Films. Rounding out the cast is Mario Velásquez, Yiliana Chong and Gaby Huaywa. The film has received several awards including the 24 Lima Film Festival 2020 (Best Actor Award), the Peruvian Association of Cinematographic Press APRECI 2020 (Best Peruvian Film, Best Actor and Best Screenplay), and has had a successful run at international festivals including the People of Color - International Exchange (New York), Latin America Film Festival Raices (Denmark), Al Este – European Film Festival (Switzerland), Global Migration Film Festival (Switzerland), La Plata Latin American Film Festival (Argentina), and 30 Festival Biarritz Amérique Latine (France).
Powerful Chief releases in theatres in Peru on December 9, 2021.
