considering the turmoil in latinamerica in the late 60's, it's not hard to imagine a film like this being made. It's now, in the new century, that the real value comes afloat, and thanks to this little piece of Bolivian cinematography we can recall not only the political and social sensation in those times, but also understand some of the new up comings in that country, considering that it has only been months since Evo Morales arrived at the presidency.
Not a movie for a typical Hollywood style viewer, but anyone who values the social struggle and the making of low-cost films with great power and meaning will like this movie. Sadly it's very hard to get, but that will always be the problem with such movies.
