Our Word: The Story of San Francisco de Moxos
Nuestra Palabra: La Historia de San Francisco de Moxos

In this docudrama, elders of the San Francisco de Moxos community tell the story of the courageous pioneers who founded their village in the Bolivian Amazons and the indigenous “cabildo”, or neighborhood council, that defended their territory from the influence of outsiders, or “carayanas”.

TWN is proud to release the work of the Bolivian indigenous media collective CEFREC/CAIB. Since 1996, CAIB (Bolivian Indigenous Peoples’ Audiovisual Council) and CEFREC (Cinematography Education and Production Center) have been at the forefront of indigenous cinema in Latin America, producing a vast catalog of documentaries, docudramas and fiction films for local indigenous communities. Although the work of CEFREC/CAIB has been featured in numerous international film festivals outside Bolivia, this unique collection has not been available for purchase outside the local Bolivian market until now.
