We are excited to announce an upcoming international film screening and discussion. Ismael Saavedra, the academic director of SIT Study Abroad's Bolivia program, will be on campus to screen his documentary Jiwasa and present a talk titled "PACHAKUTI: Art and Revolution in the Andes".
Jiwasa chronicles Saavedra's return to his hometown in Bolivia in 1999 and concludes with the election of President Evo Morales in 2006. He successfully uses Jiwasa to wrap his personal history inside broader themes of political, economic, and military oppression. As the academic director of the SIT Study Abroad Bolivia program, Saavedra has also worked with Brandeis students during their time abroad to create short films and/or children's books.
