Tip of the iceberg
27 April 2007 | by martian_rocketSee all my reviews

This documentary reflects a minimal part of the social chaos Bolivia is going through nowadays; however, it is an excellent sample of the tornado in which Bolivia is submerged socially and politically. Alejandro Landes has rescued the essence of the typical Bolivian sentiment against foreigners (not only "yankees")trying to take advantage of the richness of the Bolivian land. This is a magnificent experience in which you witness the transfer of power to the forgotten class in the history of Bolivia. Consequences? Only time will tell. To Bolivians, Cinderella was born...to foreigners, perhaps a nightmare. Reality is, Evo will hardly let power go from his hands with the support of the "ever oppressed" "never understood" people of Bolivia, as well as the malignant influence of Castro and Chavez. My congratulations to Mr. Landes and his entire crew for such an historical piece of the Bolivian reality.
