EVEN THE RAIN (También la Lluvia)
Icíar Bollaín / Spain / 104 min / 2011 / Spanish with English subtitles
Wednesday, September 10, 2014 Ronk Shar Lecture 7 PM
Filmmaker Sebastián (Gael García Bernal) and his cynical producer Costa (Luis Tosar) arrive in Cochabamba, Bolivia to make a film about Columbus’s voyage to the New World and the subjugation of the indigenous population. Just as filming begins, the natives face a crisis when the government privatizes the water company and prices skyrocket. Daily protests erupt and the local man cast as a rebellious sixteenth century Taino chief, also becomes a leader in the water hike protests. Spanish submission for the 2012 Best Foreign-Language Academy Award.
