Even the Rain

Movie Summary

Director:

Rating:
Not Available
Even the Rain is an interesting juxtaposition of two time periods, separated by over 500 years, exploring the impact of Spanish imperialism in Latin America. Set during the water rights protests which rocked Bolivia, Spanish director Sebastian (Gael Garcia Bernal) and his producer, Costa (Luis Tosar), travel to the Cochabamba area to shoot a low-budget film about Christopher Columbus' conquest of the region. To cut costs, they hire local actors, such as Daniel (Carlos Aduviri) who is hired to play Hatuey, the first indigenous Indian to revolt against Columbus' conquest. Production is hampered not only by the film crew's lack of money but with growing unrest in the area; unrest that Daniel is actively supporting. The crew must struggle to complete the film on time and under budget in an area of increasingly violent protests while Daniel's role as a rebel, both on-screen and off, raises questions for Sebastian to which there are no easy answers.
