Quechua at Princeton

As a way to close out the first semester of the Quechua workshop, we'd like to invite you to stream with us the movie Yawar Mallku. This 1969 movie is incredible for many reasons, the least of which is that it is filmed in the communities in the highlands and the main language of the movie is Quechua. The film also had important political and social ramifications in Bolivia. 

The film is in Quechua with Spanish subtitles.

The plan is to stream the movie together (it's only 70 minutes) and leave time for discussion.

Please email Felice Physioc (fphysioc@princeton.edu) if you have any questions.

Open to the University community (students, faculty, staff).
