The pilgrimage to the sanctuary of the Lord of Qoyllurit'i (DPI)

Perú - Intangible Cultural Heritage for Sustainable Development


The animated short in Quechua language is about an 8 year old boy named Manukucha, who would participate in the pilgrimage to the Sanctuary of the Lord of Qoyllurit'i in the department of Cusco, but his wish is frustrated due to the suspension of the pilgrimage as a consequence of the pandemic. Don Uturunku shares the story of his first pilgrimage to achieve a journey through the magical stories to Quyllurit'i, in which elements of the Andean cosmovision appear. The collective was a beneficiary of the Line for the strengthening of community memory within the framework of Emergency Decree No. 058-220 aimed at cultural workers and bearers of intangible cultural heritage whose economic activities were affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
