Filmmaker Rick Tejada Flores unravels secrets of his family’s past in Bolivia, discovering his grandfather’s hidden role as President during one of the bloodiest wars in Latin America. From downtown La Paz to the remote mountain town of Llojeta, Tejada Flores explores how his family, as part of the white ruling class, perpetuated disparities in rural indigenous communities. He finds both a family and a nation struggling to come to terms with their history. 56 minutes. English and Spanish with English subtitles.
