*EL GRAN MOVIMIENTO / THE GREAT MOVEMENT
Kiro Russo | Bolivia-France-Qatar-Switzerland | 2021 | Fiction | 85 min
Stunningly shot in the Bolivian mountains, jungles and in contemporary La Paz, the film follows Elder who arrives in the capital after a seven-day journey seeking to get back his work at a mine. Once in the city, Elder gets a job but his health soon deteriorates. An elderly woman known as Mama Pancha sends him to Max, a mysterious man who resides in the rainforest and occasionally heads to La Paz for work as a street performer. To save Elder, Max performs a series of shamanic rituals that slowly brings the young man back to life.
*Followed by a Q&A with María Marta Antin and Mario Santos, moderated by Professor Jerry Carlson
