The Quipu project
The Quipu project is an online interactive documentary that collects the stories of indigenous men and women in Peru that were forcibly sterilised under president Fujimori’s family planning programme in the 90s.
The Quipu team have set up a free phone line in Peru, where those affected can call and record their own stories. These recordings are also fed into an online platform where those with internet connection can listen and record their responses which in turn, get fed back into the phone line– bridging the analog-digital divide.
I designed the project’s website and interface for the pilot platform to sit alongside their crowdfunding campaign, which raised over 20k to help develop the platform.
The project has won several awards and is partnered with Amnesty International and supported by the Tribeca Film Institute. You can watch the trailer here.
