Producer: Ricardo YUI
Peru, Netherlands.

Synopsis
In the city of Lima, Rosa is the teacher of those who make a living from the garbage and occupy the hole of a construction site that was abandoned during the financial collapse. Organised by Samuel, her partner, the group works in the plastic recycling. One night, inside of a garbage bag, he finds the dead body of a foetus which, despite the aversion of the group, Rosa adopts as a protective amulet against the relentless forces that haunt them.

Objectives to be achieved
MAFIZ would represent a mayor support for DEVENIR, in this development stage. Financially and institutionally, it would open doors to find the ideal Spanish co-producer partner with whom work together in the post-production and/or distribution stage. The IBERMEDIA fund would be our partnership goal.

Co-production´s interesting countries
DEVENIR is a Peruvian film, in which the Dutch company RXYX has invested in the early development stage. Currently, we have a co-production project with the Belgium company NEED Productions. Our goal is to achieve an Ibero-American co-production partnership for exchanging creative and technical expertise with peers from Spain, Mexico and Argentina. The coWriter is Argentinean, the score composer is Mexican, and hopefully the post-production would be a Spanish signature.
