También la lluvia

Even the Rain
by Icìar Bollaìn 2010 104'

Young Sebastian is on location in Bolivia shooting a film about Christopher Columbus. The author's idea is that the film should not simply recount the Genovese navigator's extraordinary undertaking but must also show the tragic and bloody consequences of conquest, as exemplified by the battles waged by Bartolomeo de las Casas and di Hatuey, the first to lead anti-Spanish revolts. During filming, Sebastian's involvement in violent protest actions by the local population against water privatization by Western multinationals eerily reflects parallels between past and present conflicts. With Gael García Bernal in the leading role.
