Event description

Description

Idealistic and obsessive, Sebastián is a filmmaker on location in Bolivia, shooting a motion picture about Columbus' 'discovery' of America. While his film explores the Spaniards' violent treatment of the indigenous population, Sebastián also exploits the cheap local actors playing his slaved Indians. In an ironic twist, it is the actor depicting Columbus who stands up to Sebastián, accusing him of hypocrisy and manipulation. Matters are further complicated when one of the 'Indians' becomes involved in a modern-day struggle against foreign powers, leading protests against the (real-life) privatisation of the country's water supply.

Parental Guidance: This movie is not recommended for children under 15 years old.

Be on time: The movie will start at 6:00 pm so please arrive before. After 6:00 pm, the ground floor door will be closed and the elevator unable to go up to the Instituto Cervantes.

La película empezará a las 18:00 por lo que le rogamos llegue antes de esa hora. A partir de las 18:00 la puerta de la calle se cierra automáticamente y tampoco se puede acceder al 3er piso, donde se encuentra el Instituto Cervanes.
