Alma screening at the Frontline Club


WorldView-funded project Alma: A Tale of Violence, one of the most eagerly awaited cross media projects of 2012, has launched.

The interactive online web documentary from Upian is now available to watch online. For five years Alma has been a member of one of Guatemala’s most brutal gangs, a country today ravaged by an unnamed war. She tells her confession face to face. Alma’s testimony is unique. The young woman’s words open onto images of her memories, of daily life in Guatemala, and of gang subculture.

WorldView hosted a special multimedia screening of Alma: A Tale of Violence with Upian at the Frontline Club in London on 25 January, 2013.

The project’s e-producer Alexandre Brachet took viewers on a unique journey through Alma’s confession. Brachet chose his path through the two image screens presented one above the other. The bottom screen showed Alma telling her story, the second contextualised her story through Dewever-Plana’s photographs and drawings by Hugues Mìcal.
