In the Name of our Coca Leaves a.k.a. In the Name of our Coca
Cocanchej Sutimpy/A Nombre de Nuestra Coca

In the midst of the historical conflict between indigenous coca growers in Chapare and the Bolivian military, Joselo Coca must chose between his military career and his family’s survival.

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.

Reviews
"This powerful narrative film is based on the lives of indigenous coca growers in the Chapare region of Bolivia. Their perspective is reflected through the story of a young man from the community serving in the military and working to eradicate the crop."
