Old Movies in Bolivia
The Bolivian Film Foundation has been cataloging old movies from Bolivia. An article in Prensa Latina talks about the project.
La Paz, Aug 19 (Prensa Latina) The Bolivian Film Foundation cataloged more than 500 national films, among them documentaries and news of the 20, 30 and 50 of the last century, reported today in this capital.
When I saw this I was thinking about ways to address what I see as separation of us from Nicaragua which is common here on this site and others. (I am still working on a post about this.) This project in Bolivia seems like a good cultural bridge. All too often we think of movies as "something from Hollywood" yet I am sure there is a lot of film footage from around the world that could show us what is now history from a local perspective.
Is there something similar in Nicaragua and, if not, could there be?
