A film within a film: A filmmaker and producer go to Bolivia to make a revisionist film about Christopher Columbus’ conquest of the Americas. As filming begins, citizens protest against a multi-national corporation that is taking control of their water supply. Inspired by the real-life Water Wars in Bolivia in the year 2000, “Even the Rain” explores the lasting effects of Spanish imperialism on indigenous people.
