*** To precede the film, The Fall of Fujimori
Dr. Jorge Parodi will discuss:
An approach to the political process in Peru after 1900, President Fujimori's election and his downfall in 2000, the 'neoliberal' ideas after the Fall of Berlin Wall and the relationship with the United States and Japan.
A cultural approach to Peruvian society. From Machu Picchu and the Inca Empire to new food revolution and Peruvian cuisine. The 90's free market ideas, a new Constitution and the new Peruvian spring for investments.
The 90's violence agenda, Shining Path and Tupac Amaru movement and the defeat of terrorism. The failure of the war against narcotraffic. Vladimiro Montesinos, the "vladivideos gate" and the downfall of President Fujimori.
Peru now and new challenges.
