What have the Romans ever done for us?
11 November 2012 | by georggeckertSee all my reviews

This doc tells the story of a little village whose life is about to be transformed. New factories are being built. They will harvest what is supposed to be the largest lithium field in the world. The exploitation threatens the old order. They will lose their current job. They get cellphones and their children will have to go to school instead of working in the mines. Watching the doc I always asked myself why is this supposed to be bad? Sure enough their'll be people who loose. Yet this is a big chance. In fact this project got started to improve the living conditions of the Indian population in Bolivia. It will also be vital for the energetic revolution towards renewable energies. The doc didn't bother to tell this side. It reminded me of Monty Pythons "The Life of Bryan" when the partisans ask: " Apart from sanitation, medicine, public order, (..) and roads, what have the Romans ever done for us?"
