In "Propaganda Décimo Aniversario" (translates 10th Anniversary Propaganda), Cristian Alarcón proposes a rereading of history. Namely of "La Marcha de los Cuatro Suyos", a massive protest in Peru aimed at preventing the third reelection of Alberto Fujimori as ruler, but that in the end was unsuccessful. Later, Alberto Fujimori's dictatorial regime celebrated its continuity in power by commissioning a celebratory film for such victory to Toho Studios in Japan ( film producer responsible for successful films such as Godzilla). In "Propaganda Décimo Aniversario", Cristian Alorcón creates a fictional video trailer for such a celebratory film.

Cristian Alarcón (Lima , 1976) is a Peruvian artist working with video art, animated film, documentary film, video-installation, video-mapping, drawing and graphic design to question and satirize symbols, rituals and institutions of the society in which he lives.  His works have been invited to different exhibitions, biennials and international festivals of both contemporary art, video and film.
