  • Details : Our first movie in the Films from Away series for 2014, “Even the Rain,” will take us to the warm and lush hills around Cochabamba, Bolivia (only a one-hour flight and four-hour drive from Corner Brook’s sister city, Padilla). The film is set around an actual event in 2000 (referred to as the Cochabamba Water War) when a foreign multinational tried to privatize all of the water in the city (which is the third-largest in Bolivia). In the film, a movie company had come to town to make a film about the aftermath of Christopher Columbus. They find themselves in the midst of protests, and a moral crisis about their own participation in the remnants of imperialism. It is an award-winning film, and was Spain’s official submission to the Academy Awards in 2011. All are welcome. Free, as always.
