Forgotten stories of present invisible lives
25 March 2007 | by (www.efeweb.es) – See all my reviews

Five directors, Isabel Coixet, Fernando Leon de Aranoa, Wim Wenders, Mariano Barroso and Javier Corcuera in a movie produced by actor Javier Bardem. This movie presents five forgotten stories all of which are currently happening, in fact to be more precise these are not really forgotten but as the title emphasizes they are "invisible".

All are quite well treated and really well done, the first one by Coixet builds on the life of a bolivian girl working in Barcelona who sends money back home to a family devastated by an illness which no big pharmaceutical laboratory is trying to cure, "la chancha", and which affects millions of people who live in deep poverty.

The second one filmed by Wim Wenders gives voice to several women of the Democratic republic of Congo who have suffered the worst consequences of war.

The third film made by Fernando Leon is just fantastic, the drama of several thousand of children of the northern parts of Uganda. These children walk every night before the night falls to avoid being kidnapped by soldiers. Fernando Leon films, not avoiding the beautiful scenery of Uganda, many of the children and their stories and also those who take care of the shelters where "the night commuters" go looking for protection every night.

Mariano Barroso departs slightly from the usual documentary format to mix the way big pharmaceutical corporations work and the way many citizens of Africa suffer the consequences of their policies (or the lack of any policy).

The final piece by Javier Corcuera follows a group of farmers from Colombia who lost their lands to the "guerrilla" and other para military forces and which are now trying to gain them back to recover their lives.

This movie is a must. It doesn't matter if one wants to see it as a way of advertising one particular NGO, "MSF", the stories are there and they just present them to our eyes, maybe dreaming that in this way they will stop being "invisibles". In my case, they have completely achieved it. Hope you learn from it too.
