even the rain.

“In fourteen hundred and ninety three, Columbus stole all he could see.”

Even the Rain comes out Feb 11, and I am eagerly anticipating this movie’s release.  The movie focuses on the oppression of native people in Bolivia back in Columbus’ time, and how oppression continues to be perpetuated in the 21 century.  I think this movie is for all indigenous people and speaks to the systematic racism and oppression that continues today.
