Dir. Violeta Ayala. 2023, 93 mins. Australia/USA/Bolivia. Presented as part of the 16th Annual ReelAbilities Film Festival: New York, this powerful documentary follows Feliza, Mareele, Rose Mery, and Miguel as they spearhead a movement to advocate for the rights of people with disabilities. They gather and motivate hundreds during a 35-day, 250-mile journey across the Andes to reach the Bolivian capital, battling harsh conditions and hunger along the way. Confronting barricades, riot police, and hostility from fellow citizens, these activists persist and ultimately arrive in La Paz, rewriting national history. New York Premiere. Content warning: police brutality.
