Resisting – Voices of the Victims of the Pando Massacre in Bolivia
On September 11, 2008, 13 people – most of them peasants – were murdered in Pando, one of the departments with greatest opposition to Evo Morales’ government, in what international bodies such as Unasur and the UN called “the Porvenir Massacre” or “the Pando Massacre”.
The massacre resulted in hundreds of injured and dozens of displaced people but, despite this, more than one year on, those repsonsible have still not been brought to justice...
This documentary shows what happened on that day, but also places this fateful event in a broader context. The film is a portrait of the lives of the families of the victims and of those who survived the violence after September 11.
