FILM SCREENING TONIGHT: 'Yawar Mallku'/'Blood of the Condor'‏ @ Barbican Centre, London 18:30

'Yawar Mallku', which caused great controversy when it was first released in 1969,
is a fictional response to contemporary rumors about the forced sterilization of 
indigenous women in highland Bolivia. 
It touches on themes of international development, indigenous sovereignty,
medical technology and reproductive rights. 
It was one of the first feature length films with extended dialogue in Quechua
(subtitles are provided!)and is widely regarded as a classic of South American 
film making.

There will be a screening this evening of the classic Jorge Sanjinés film 
'Yawar Mallku' or 'Blood of the Condor', at the Barbican Centre in London at 18.30. 

 Tickets are available from the Barbican Centre:
