Stephanie Boyd is a Canadian film maker and journalist who has been living and working in Peru for the past 16 years. Her films have been broadcast on Al Jazeera, the Sundance Channel, TeleSur, Russia Today, Press TV and other networks and won several international awards.... which hasn’t stopped Peruvian authorities from censoring them. The Devil Operation, her latest film, exposes the dangerous link between mining corporations and private security firms that specialize in espionage, kidnapping and torture. Stephanie doesn’t get invited to a lot of embassy parties.
