Bolivia is a relatively short and simple movie which contains many cinematographic techniques which transmit different messages and themes to the audience. The plot of the film revolves around an immigrant from Bolivia who finds a job in Argentina as a cook at a restaurant-bar. The director uses several different camera shots as a means of revealing the main setting, in the restaurant, and providing insights on the new life of the newcomer. Moreover, through the use of high angles at certain points and the black and white coloring of the whole movie, the author lets the audience know that there is a bigger issue which drives the whole movie racism. This issue is hinted at by the angles and color of the filming, but then it is made evident by the dialogue which is exchanged by people at the bar and the actions which follow up. The movie is certainly worth watching with an artistic and appreciative eye.
