This Sunday the 16th of May, Cinema Klandestino is very lucky to bring the director Rodrigo Vazquez to the Cube Cinema. We’ll be screening two of his documentary films and he’ll be discussing them with everyone afterwards.
Winner of the Grand Prize at the 2009 Montreal Human Rights Film
Festival‘Child Miners’ (2008) is a documentary about the daily
troubles of two child miners, Jorge and Alex, who make one dollar a day working in the crumbling Bolivian mine of Lllallagua.

‘President Evo’ (2009) is co-narrated by the filmmaker and Evo Morales. It tells the story of how Bolivia’s first indigenous President managed to re-write the Constitution, re-distribute the land among poor peasants and nationalise the gas industry, as these events were actually unfolding.
