Suma Qamaña/Sumak Kausay/Teko Kavi/Para Vivir Bien

With exclusive footage, this film documents the drafting of the 2009 Bolivian constitution, and the long history of indigenous activism that led to this revolutionary movement for ethnic and linguistic equality.

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.

"In Bolivia, a forceful new movement for progressive change has emerged from the indigenous peoples of the country. Indigenous videomakers document the historic process of mobilization by indigenous and peasant organizations, leading to the drafting of a controversial new national constitution that recognizes indigenous autonomy and protects linguistic and cultural diversity."
