Dusting Off Our History
Desempolvando Nuestra Historia
Leaders of three different Ayllus, or indigenous communities, meet to celebrate their common traditions, their love for music and sports, and to reflect on the rapid changes in agriculture, education, health services and telecommunications that are transforming their towns.
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.
