Event description
Based on real testimonies, this docu-drama film tells the story of Tania, a teenage girl forced into prostitution in the gold mining regions

About this Event

The Amazon flows lazily through the goldmine-gashed landscape of northern Peru. Using real eyewitness accounts, directors Bénédicte Liénard and Mary Jiménez tell the story of a young woman who winds up forced into prostitution when her initially hopeful attempt to escape the stifling limitations of village life goes wrong.

Step by step, she is robbed of her moral and physical integrity. The film reconstitutes a space of dignity and returns voice and identity to that which has been formally rendered nameless. With its powerful imagery, the girl’s traumatic odyssey embodies the horrific devastation visited upon the natural world by contemporary industrial society.

Mary Jiménez, born in Peru, initially studied architecture in Lima before pursuing film studies at the INSAS film school in Belgium. During her career as a filmmaker she has also taught filmmaking in Belgium, Cuba and Switzerland. Being a writer and a director for more than 30 years, Mary’s work includes films like Du Verbe Aimer, La Position du Lion Couché, Le Dictionnaire selon Marcus et Héros sans Visage, all of which have been selected at numerous festivals worldwide.

Bénédicte Liénard studied film direction at the Institut des Arts de Diffusion (in Louvain- La-Neuve). Her first feature film Une Part du Ciel screened in the Un Certain Regard section at Cannes, as well as at the festivals of Toronto, San Sebastian and New York. She went on to direct numerous hard-hitting documentaries, widely screened both at festivals and on television. She’s been teaching film direction at the Belgian Film School IAD for several years and she is this year’s artist in residence at UCL University (Louvain-La- Neuve). By the Name of Tania will be her third collaboration with Mary Jiménez.
