CARACAS, Venezuela.-

"Much of the bolivian mestizo society, ignores the values of Indian culture, and this ignorance had disastrous political consequences for the bolivian right, because in their ignorance, the result of his contempt, his racism, politically have been far wrong. I would say they have definitely lost their political power”

That is the way sentenced Bolivian filmmaker Jorge Sanjines who was in Caracas this week to present his latest film: The Sons Of The Last Garden.

This film, based on a true story, tells the story of a young revolutionary, disgusted by the corruption that permeates the country, convincing a group of friends to commit robbery in the house of a senator accused of wrongdoing, for and give the money to the people. Forced to flee, a professor, a friend of him, take them to a Qulla community where learn lesson they did not expect.

This film continues the theme that the director has always tried in his works: the culture and wisdom of indigenous peoples and the socio-political problems of his country, besides being visionary process that Bolivia later lived with the rise to power Evo Morales.

He added that the most interesting part of this process of change in Bolivian society, it follows the logic Qulla democratic, not an individualistic vision of life.

"The whole world is sick of individualism today. That was the origin of the birth of capitalism, private property. The man has strayed from its route, has been separated from nature, has become a plunderer, an exploiter because of capitalism. "

Hence, the extraordinary message that gives the Indian society, he said. Not only for Bolivia but for indigenous peoples in general, from the north to Patagonia, who have developed and looked at life under the slogan: "first us and then me."

"They already have it resolved, 62% of the Bolivian people first think like us and then as I do. Now have to re-educate the mestizos, who still are individualists, " reflected the filmaker.
