MANIFESTO

THEY HAVE TOLD US HOW OUR FUTURE SHOULD BE.

THEY HAVE IMPOSED UPON US THEIR VISION OF PARADISE.

THEY HAVE EXCLUDED US FOR NOT BEING PART OF THEIR WORLDVIEW.

BUT WE HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY: WE HAVE A UTOPIA. OUR UTOPIA.

AND WE ARE BUILDING IT.

IN IT, THERE IS NO DISCRIMINATION AND WE IGNORE PREJUDICES. IN IT, WE BELIEVE IN LISTENING TO ALL VOICES AND IDENTITIES, IN BUILDING A HORIZONTAL SOCIETY.

WE WANT TO DANCE TO OUR OWN TUNE, NOT TO THE RHYTHM IMPOSED ON US FROM THE OUTSIDE.

WE ARE IDENTITIES. WE ARE RESISTANCES. WE ARE DREAMS.

WE ARE STORIES.

STORIES TOLD FROM WITHIN, SPANNING KILOMETERS THROUGH THE MEDIUM WE ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT: CINEMA, BUT NOT JUST ANY CINEMA, CINEMA MADE BY COMMUNITIES.

STORIES THAT HEAL THE PAST AND LOOK TOWARDS THE FUTURE.

JOIN US IN THIS DREAM.

GUIDELINES

For working together with local teams and communities, HISTORIAS EN KILÓMETROS (HEK) proposes the collective construction of basic agreements that take into account the specific local context as a roadmap.

The objective of these agreements is to guarantee HEK's commitment to working from a human rights perspective and zero discrimination against individuals or groups based on gender, race, social class, sexual orientation, creed, and/or disability status.

Thus, HEK adopts the "do no harm" approach as a reference for constructing these agreements and as a guide for the audiovisual products that emerge from the training processes.

HISTORIAS EN KILÓMETROS adheres to citizen participation and social control, as these are fundamental to ensuring the transparency of public management and the proper use of public resources.

HISTORIAS EN KILÓMETROS does not generate profits or benefits for administrators, donors, participants, or project allies. All our resources are used to train our local teams.

HEK is based on two pillars: the time resource donated by our trainers, professional filmmakers, and the economic resource provided by entities that identify with our guidelines and our Protection Policy.

The economic resources are used to strengthen local teams in the field, implement a training curriculum that includes in-person workshops, and maintain solid and continuous virtual communication, which generates installed filmmaking capacity in each community.
