Tous les jours la nuit - Mineros en Bolivia

Jean-Claude Wicky – 2010

For many years, the Swiss photographer Jean-Claude Wicky captured the world of Bolivian miners in photographs. When he discovered how strongly they reacted to his pictures, he decided to make a film. Black-and-white photographs alternate with film sequences, in which the miners talk about the harsh conditions of their everyday lives, while also rendering visible their pride, dignity, culture and dynamic traditions. Every day is night is first and foremost a testimonial of profoundly sincere human encounters based on respect, generosity and gratitude. More

El corazón de Jesús

Marcos Loayza – 2004

A man in need of a miracle learns that the hospital will help those who help themselves in this satiric comedy. Jesus (Augustin Mendieta) is a low-level office worker in the Bolivian government who one day suffers a heart attack and ends up with a long and unexpected stay in the hospital. Adding to Jesus' problems, his wife decides to leave him while he's in recovery, and by the time he gets out he literally has debts he could never hope to pay. However, Jesus discovers there's another patient at the hospital who has the same name - and who happens to have unlimited insurance coverage. More

The film-makers get involved with the local population, mainly Indian. Their attempts to use the Indians as extras in their film, as victims of the callous Spaniards, is however a failure. After their request is categorically refused, they do manage to 'persuade' several inhabitants of a neighbouring village. The production is saved, but the incidents pile up. More
