Emotive and exciting documentary!, 24 April 2007
Author: pikechuck from Madrid, Spain

I had the chance to watch this movie in La Paz, Bolivia and I loved it. It is an amazing real story that I recommend to anyone who is interested in social movements and/or Latin America. I do not really like the title of the movie, but I guess is to call the attention of the people. However the documentary is a good quality piece, well organized, with very exciting moments. I have heard it got great reception in the Sundance Festival and Miami. Also in LatinAmerica makes the people applause many scenes. I personally had to clap a couple of times in some of the remarks of Evo Morales. It has many funny and curious moments of these historical moments. It is important to notice that Evo is the first indigenous President of Bolivia in its history. I congratulate the director and the crew for the movie. And of course the Bolivian people for it. No matter if you like Evo Morales or not, this is a great show.
