CALA Spring 2020 Film Series: YOUR VOICES, YOUR VOTES: ACTIVISM AROUND THE WORLD
Film Screening: También la Lluvia (Even the Rain). Dir. Icíar Bollaín (Spain, Mexico, France, 2010)
About the film: As a director and his crew shoot a controversial film about Christopher Columbus in Cochabamba, Bolivia, local people rise up against plans to privatize the water supply.
As the US presidential election rapidly approaches, this series focuses on the state of democracy and democratic values around the globe. Through four powerful international films, we examine the critical importance of individual and collective political engagement across various issues. We consider how shifting the boundaries of our democracies can allow for the inclusion of a greater array of voices. And we remind ourselves that liberty can never be taken for granted.
