Humberto Mancilla is the director of Bolivia’s PUKAÑAWI Center of Cultural Management, which houses the Human Rights Film Archives and organizes the International Festival of Human Rights Cinema. The archives aim to nurture the expression of cultural diversity through film and human rights education. The center provides visual education about human and Indigenous rights in Latin America to filmmakers and to the Bolivian public. PUKAÑAWI means “red eye” in the Quechua language and is an homage to the center’s roots in supporting Indigenous cinema.
