The Wayuu Film and Video Show was born in 2008 as an initiative of young filmmakers worried about not having spaces for dissemination and exhibition of their work in La Guajira. Alliances are quickly made between the Wayuu Women's Force Organization and the Jain Wain’juin Audiovisual Foundation (Venezuela). The young filmmakers David Hernández Palmar, Miguel Iván Ramírez and Leiqui Uriana, with great interest and enthusiasm, show their first cycle of Wayuu cinema on the improvised screens of a wall of the town of Uribia, beginning the Wayuu Culture Festival First cycle of the Wayuu Film and Video Exhibition. Thus, this space was born to promote an exchange where communities, spectators and the general public could contribute critically to the achievements, as well as helping to recognize in us as Wayuu the possibility of telling our own stories.

The Wayuu People's Communications Network, summons all indigenous and non-indigenous filmmakers in the world to participate with their audiovisual works in the 9th Wayuu MUCIWA Film and Video Exhibition, to be held in La Guajira from November 27 to 30, 2019. The call for this exhibition is only for audiovisual works with thematic Wayuu, made by Wayuu and not Wayuu.

The works will be screened in alternative spaces, communities and in dissemination activities and training workshops organized within the framework of the event.

All MUCIWA programming will be free and open to the general public.
