Product Description
This is a fictional film based on a true event, the Bolivian Water Wars which occurred in 2000 when the government tried to privatize the water supply and raise rates 300% making clean water inaccessible for a large sector of the poorest population. Gael Garcia Bernal is a Spanish director filming a movie about Columbus conquest in Cochabamba Bolivia and the movie is an interplay between scripted scenes where the Spaniards exploited the Taino under Columbus, and Bartolome de las Casas defends them, while in modern day scenes villagers are exploited by their government and even by the film makers, until one man helps them mobilize and stand up for their rights. An excellent movie, It opens discussion for how little has changed for the indigenous poor in much of Central and South America and all the parallels between the initial exploitation and modern day inequities.. Best suited for older/higher level high school students who are studying the cutural aspects of Latin America as well as the language. Study guide contains questions, topics for discussion and a list of topics for follow up research if students are interested. Answer key included. Film is in Spanish with subtitles.
