Peru: Sacrifices in the Kingdom of Chimú
RTP2, 4:14 pm
In 2019, one of the largest child sacrifice sites in history was discovered in Peru. A group of archaeologists found a mass grave with the remains of 227 children between the ages of five and 14. Due to the position of the corpses and other elements, they would belong to the Chimú people, one of the civilizations that dominated the north coast of Peru between the 13th and 15th centuries, before being conquered by the Incas.
Child sacrifice was a common and characteristic act of this people. In this case, the large-scale ritual would have been aimed at pleasing the gods to put an end to catastrophic weather conditions. Jérôme Scemla’s documentary focuses on the mysteries of this Andean civilization, largely unraveled by this discovery.
The Girl in the Photo
The hell of the Vietnam War was encapsulated in one of the most iconic and disturbing photographs taken there: that of Kim Phuc, the thin, naked girl who fled in despair from being burned alive by napalm.
The image, awarded with a Pulitzer and decisive for changing public opinion regarding the conflict, was captured on June 8, 1972, by the then young photographer Nick Ut (Associated Press), who at the time took it to the hospital and kept it contact since then. It is her life story that is documented in this work by Patrick Cabouat.
