El Fuego Dentro (The Fire Inside)
A film by Dante Alencastre
Featuring Leyla Huerta, Gaby Marino, Mishell Romani and Belissa Andia
El Fuego Dentro (The Fire Inside) documents the personal and political transformation of a group of extraordinary Peruvian transgender grassroots activists in a culture hostile to their very existence. As they fight to establish basic human rights and to create ‘a place at the table’ for all Peruvian transgender citizens, they also experience significant transformations in their personal, family and work lives.
Dante Alencastre is a Peruvian-born, L.A. based, documentary filmmaker and activist. His previous award-winning film En El Fuego (In the Fire), 2007, examined the plight of this group of transgender Peruvians five years previously.
