Even the Rain

Even the Rain

Mexican filmmakers Sebastian and Costa, shooting a film in Bolivia about the conquest by Christopher Columbus, become embroiled in controversy when their filming schedule runs up against the Cochabamba protests, when local natives rise up against the privatisation of their water supply.

As the production is beset by more and more problems and the riots escalate, the tensions rise between the crew members.

Once again we are lucky to be home to the Latin Film Festival! Join us at 6pm on 17 October for the festival’s opening film Even the Rain and then join us the following weekend for two jam-packed days of free films!

This year’s weekly ArtBite programme is about to start! From Friday 10 February, we will again offer a weekly presentation of a work on display here at Te Puna o Waiwhetū. The aim of these 30-minute talks is to give you an art break in the middle of your day. We know you’re busy, so this isn’t a long lecture meant to take up too much of your time. And they’re free. With a new work presented each Friday at 12.30pm, the information will be fresh so you can impress your friends during your weekend socialising.
