About the feature: MY BOLIVIA, REMEMBERING WHAT I NEVER KNEW
A Latino filmmaker travels to Bolivia to to find the things his parents told him, and what they never mentioned… the family’s slave-owning past, his grandfather the President’s role in Latin America’s bloodiest war, the relative who was one of the leaders of the Revolution, and connections with a Nazi war criminal… all a far cry from growing up in California and living a life as an an activist. MY BOLIVIA, REMEMBERING WHAT I NEVER KNEW is the winner of the Audience Award for Best Documentary Feature at the 21st Cine Las Americas International Film Festival.
