"Even the Rain"

“Even the Rain”

The 2010 film “Even the Rain” will be presented at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 22, in Plaster Hall’s Cornell Auditorium at part of the 54th annual International Film Festvial.

Directed by Icíar  Bollaín, the film explores the blurring of life and art in cinema. The story follows an idealistic film director and his producer, who are on location in Bolivia to make a revisionist film about Christopher Columbus’s discovery and conquest of the Americas. They soon find their project disrupted by popular protests against a multi-national corporation that is taking control of the country’s water supply.

Starring Gael Garcia Bernal and Luis Tosar, “Even the Rain” is not rated. Admission to the screening is free and open to the public.
