An idealistic young director (Gael Garcia Bernal) sets out to expose Christopher Columbus as a conquering imperialist, only after gold, who exploited and destroyed indigenous cultures as he pursued his fortune. His producer (Luis Tosar), seemingly oblivious to the irony, moves production of the period piece to Bolivia so as to take advantage of the lower cost of labor there. When they arrive, they encounter a population caught up in the throes of civic upheaval as the government tries to privatize the water supply. As the crisis around them increasingly encroaches upon the production, the film focuses in on the director and producer, their personal evolution and unexpected reactions to the plight of those around them.

Director, Producer, Actor to attend screenings

Based on the Cochabamba Water Crisis of 2000, veteran director Iciar Bollain’s powerful and layered film set against historic and current events, lays bare the hypocrisies of a post-colonial world where injustices to the dispossessed continue unchecked. Beautifully executed period details contrasted with the raw energy of the current crisis blur the lines between fiction, reality, past and present.
