Even the Rain (2010): Brief Review

Even the Rain directed by Icíar Bollaín (2010), is a film about the filming of a film about Christopher Columbus, his exploration of America, and his ill treatment of the tribal American peoples, which offers a view of how the modern native population in the America’s, specifically in South American in this film, are still treated. The non-native population and native population have been constant war since the landing of the Europeans on American soil. That whole struggle is framed within the struggles of making a film. It highlights pay disparity, treatment of native groups by those of Eurocentric heritage, and how the struggle of those that are seen as less is ignored until they fight back. It’s a good film with some rough spots in the story that drag on but overall well done.

Watched on Netflix.
