excerpt, full review at my location.Bolivia is not well known for its movie making. Juan Carlos Valdivia is probably the most critically acclaimed export with his movies Zona Sur (Southern Zone) and American Visa. However, of late the country has been host to a flourishing documentary scene, the time appears to be right in this developing nation for this kind of movie making to succeed. La Chirola is a short documentary that has had nice international success, winning numerous awards around the globe. It dives into the globe of those who have been confined, to test to understand the difficulties of life both inside and outside prison. Both visually striking and narratively gripping, La Chirola is a triumph. Cajias has a charm to him, which makes him very watchable, despite his rather depressing views on the human race. It offers up a bleak view of humankind, but it is gripping viewing, and its aesthetic pleasures are more than rewarding.
This 26 min film is a pretty yet harsh black and white postcard from Bolivia. A boy who has got out of jail lives a easy life with his dog companions. He shares thoughts on his prison time, his life once released and on life in general. From someone who's had a profligate lifestyle you would not expect thoughts that are as easy and raw and yet so profound and wise. The director makes an perfect test of the camera alternating vivid and blurred scenes according to what the protagonist is telling. I Really enjoyed this short movie, I found it somewhat artistic and poetic. It shows us the power of enlightenment of certain characters that one can search in territories we don't expect.
