World Cinema Series: Even the Rain

(Director:
Iciar Bollain 2010) Spanish director Sebastián, his
executive producer Costa and all his crew are in Bolivia, in the Cochabamba
area, to shoot a motion picture about Christopher Columbus, his first
explorations and the way the Spaniards treated the Indians at the time. Costa
has chosen this place because the budget of the film is tight and here he can
hire supernumeraries, local actors and extras on the cheap. Things go more or
less smoothly until a conflict erupts over the privatization of the water
supply. The trouble is that one of the local actors is a leading activist in
the protest movement.
