EL GRAN MOVIMIENTO
Three mine workers are roaming through La Paz (which Kiro Russo says is the least Europeanised city in Latin America), passing by workers’ protests in their search for jobs and beer. One of them falls ill with a fever. A market woman thinks she recognises a godchild in him and gets him a job. When his coughing gets worse, she arranges for him to see a homeless shaman, and his feverish condition starts to seep into the 16mm material. Mysterious interpretations compete with sober observations in this hypnotic cinematic experience to which words cannot do justice.
