También la lluvia (Even the Rain)
Mexican filmmakers Sebastian (Gael García Bernal) and Costa (Luis Tosar), shooting a film in Bolivia about the conquest by Christopher Columbus, become embroiled in controversy when their film schedule runs up against the Cochabamba protests. With local natives rising up against the privatization of their water supply.
