Forgotten Season: Screening – Bolivia: Looking for the Revolution

Screening Wednesday 6th August, 2008

Director Rodrigo Vazquez’ film Looking for the Revolution runs between 2001 and 2007 in search of  the socialist revolution that was abruptly halted with the murder of Che Guevara in 1967, leaving the indigenous peoples’ dreams of freedom in tatters and forgotten by the outside world.

After Che’s death the indigenous peoples’ revolutionary cause was sidelined until the rise of Evo Morales, a native former coca leaf farmer who became the country’s president in 2005.

Looking for the Revolution gets close to the grass roots indigenous movement in Bolivia and asks whether the people have been failed by their new leaders and if the revolution started by Che can be continued into the twenty first century.

Directed, Filmed and Produced by: Rodrigo Vazquez
Length: 53 mins
