STUCCHI-PORTOCARRERO, Santiago  and  HERRERA-LOPEZ, Vanessa. Current Peruvian cinema and psychopathology. Rev Neuropsiquiatr [online]. 2014, vol.77, n.4, pp.207-213. ISSN 0034-8597.

Abnormal human behavior has been an inexhaustible source for the film industry, often disseminating prejudice, but also cinema has created memorable characters for psychiatry. A psychopathological analysis of five current Peruvian films are presented in this article: “Maruja en el infierno” (1983), “Caídos del cielo” (1990), “Bajo la piel” (1996), “Días de Santiago” (2004) y “La teta asustada” (2009).

Keywords : Cinema; Peru; psychopathology.
