Angels of the Earth, The

In his first trip to the city, Sinchi faces deceit, violence and rejection from strangers and from his long lost brother, Antonio. This short drama is a cautionary tale about the dangers of city life and the loss of indigenous pride and identity.

TWN is proud to release the work of the Bolivian indigenous media collective CEFREC/CAIB. Since 1996, CAIB (Bolivian Indigenous Peoples’ Audiovisual Council) and CEFREC (Cinematography Education and Production Center), have been at the forefront of indigenous cinema in Latin America, producing a vast catalog of documentaries, docudramas and fiction films for local indigenous communities. Although the work of CEFREC/CAIB has been featured in numerous international film festivals outside Bolivia, this unique collection has not been available for purchase outside the local Bolivian market until now.

Reviews
"This cautionary tale about the harshness of city life portrays two brothers from a poor mountain village. Antonio, the elder, has left to find a better life in Cochabamba. Years later, his younger brother Sinchi seeks him out, with tragic consequences."
