Thanks to iggy and Faux for the trailer to Iciar Bollain‚Äôs Tambi√©n la lluvia (‚ÄúEven the Rain‚Äù)
In February and March of 2000, protests broke out daily in Cochabamba, Bolivia, in response to the government‚Äôs decision to privatize the water company. The cost of water went up by up by 300 per cent. Iciar Bollain‚Äôs latest feature, “Even the Rain”, tells the story of a film crew that arrives right at this tense juncture of the city‚Äôs history.
Intercutting footage of [the fictional] film with recordings of the actual protests, the lines between fiction and reality, past and present, are efficiently blurred. Effective on many levels, this film within a film draws subtle parallels between the exploitation of the past and the continued exploitation of Latin America by richer countries and multinational corporations.
