“If you still haven’t made a space for yourself to meet the little #sistu and accompany him in his great dream: to see the cinema with his own eyes, ‘the talking wall’, we encourage you to give yourself this little gift for the soul”, shared the production of “Willaq Pirqa” on social networks.
Currently, the film is in its seventh week on the Peruvian billboard. This Tuesday the 24th and Wednesday the 25th will be the last performances in Chiclayo, Huancayo, Piura, Trujillo and Cajamarca.
