Editorial Reviews

Qhapaq Nan, known as the Great Inca Road, is an ancient network of roads spanning more than 8,000 miles, running through the heart of the Andes, from the ocean and deserts all the way to Machu Picchu.

Constructed hundreds of years ago during the Inca Empire, this vast transportation network still weaves its way through modern-day Peru and Ecuador. An astonishing feat of engineering, it connected Inca cities, administrative centers, agricultural and mining areas as well as ceremonial centers and sacred spaces.

More so than other remnants of the Inca civilization, the Qhapaq Nan is a symbol of a common identity that nourishes the dreams of Andean people to this day and is central to reviving their unique cultural inheritance following centuries of European domination.

Going beyond the clichés of the tourism industry, the voices of people we meet tell us about their lives, hopes and dreams. As this visually striking documentary takes us along the Great Inca Road - revealing its contours, its history, and its secrets - we witness a different image of the Andes and its people.

Format: DVD
Traveling along the Inca Trail in Andean Peru, the filmmaker interviews a smattering of locals who tell their stories to an eagerly inquisitive and curious camera. Much of the landscape is awe-inspiring and inspirational while the stories accentuate the hardships of living in such remote circumstances. I've been there and I can say that the ambiance evoked in the film matched my experience superbly. The people of mountainous Peru are as stoic as the steep mountain valleys they inhabit are topographically extreme. Voices Of The Andes gives you a taste.

I watched this recently on Netflix and after seeing it, I bought the DVD from Amazon. This is a mesmerizing film, with beautiful scenery and music, and the story of this part of the Andes is also incredible. I love this film.

The film is profound in the sense that it shows life as it is for the Altiplano of Peru. I bought the film for a college professor to show to sociology class.
