“Video becomes a crucial technology for the reinvention of indigenous cultures, directed against the effects of the long-standing discrimination of indigenous people, languages, medicinal practices, as well as their social and economic relations.”
- Freya Schiwy, Decolonizing the Frame: Indigenous Video in the Andes
"The regional indigenous movement of the 1990s in Bolivia sets the stage for the country’s first indigenous feature film. Communities in lowland Beni are shattered by violence meted out by illegal loggers. Their defense of their lives and lands culminates in protests that change the political landscape of Bolivia forever."
"It is the mid-nineties and an era of change for the Indigenous people of Bolivia… Described as Bolivia's first Indigenous feature film, this groundbreaking film is an intimate portrait of village life, a people's on-going struggle against corruption and a vivid recollection of a tumultuous time in Boilivia's history."
