A river of tears will tear you apart
28 May 2006 | by joelsegarraSee all my reviews

The director of this little unpretentious documentary takes a Michael Mooresque approach towards denouncing injustice in Chile. The unfair treatment received by Mapuches -a proud, independent people living high on mountains- by a large Spanish energy company -endesa- who doesn't give a damn about these people and builds a big dam where they live.

What goes on -the documentary shows- is that ten years on, with the dam and the damage done.. the democratic government of Chile still represses the unfairly treated -their own people- in favor of the Spanish company.

Maybe the only negative point of the documentary is that in presenting the chilean politicians and endesa executives as villains (Rodolfo Martin Villa-in on top) with excruciating detail... we end up not knowing much about the culture of the Mapuches in what may have been the last chance they will ever get to get their culture heard after the waters of RALCO -the dam- drowned them.
