Spanish Movie Night: También La Lluvia (Even The Rain) says
After our journey through Spanish cinema, we move on to new adventures... This summer we will bring you new movies that have been produced or co-produced by Spain, along some other countries, including France, Mexico and the USA.

También la Lluvia, a movie released in 2010, was directed by one of Spanish cinema's most prolific women: Icíar Bollaín ('Hola, ¿estás sola?', 'Te doy mis ojos').

This movie sets up an intriguing dialogue about Spanish imperialism through incidents taking place some 500 years apart, while examining the personal belief systems of the members of a film crew headed by director Sebastian (Gael Garcia Bernal) and his producer Costa (Luis Tosar) who arrive in Bolivia to make a revisionist film about the conquest of Latin America. Set in February and March of 2000 when real-life protests against the privatization of water rocked the nation, the film reflexively blurs the line between fiction and reality.
