About This Project


After 36 years, Peru returns to the FIFA World Cup in Russia in 2018. Can this huge national achievement start to heal decades of armed conflict, social and economic upheaval, and a traumatised national identity? “As We Are” is a reflective journey through growing up in Peru during the 1980s and disappointment —and ultimate pride— of their National Football Team.



Nakon 36 godina, Peru se vraća na FIFA-ino svjetsko prvenstvo u Rusiji 2018. Može li ovo veliko nacionalno dostignuće početi liječiti desetljećima oružanih sukoba, socijalnih i ekonomskih preokreta i traumatiziranog nacionalnog identiteta? “Kakvi jesmo” odraz je putovanja kroz odrastanje u Peruu tijekom 1980-ih i razočaranje – i krajnji ponos – njihove nogometne reprezentacije.
