TAMBIÉN LA LLUVIA/EVEN THE RAIN (15) 2012 SPAIN BOLLAÍN, ICIAR £14.99 
  Spanish actress, writer and director Icíar Bollaín directs this political docu-drama about an international film crew that arrives in rural Bolivia to make a film about Christopher Columbus. However, director Sebastian (Gael Garcia Bernal) and his crew find their project under threat when violent demonstrations break out locally against the corporate ownership of the area's water rights. The film uses a dual storyline to draw parallels between issues of wealth, ownership and political power both 500 years ago, when Spain first conquered the New World, and today, when corporate giants use their money and power to ride roughshod over the rights of indigenous people.
