Day 70/365 The Tivoli
So tonight I went to the Tivoli to see También la Lluvia - Even the Rain- a film about a Spanish film crew going to Bolivia to make a film about Christopher Colombus and the exploitation of the Indians. It turns out that there is STILL the exploitation of the Indians going on today as the "rich" are trying to take control of the water and sell it to the people. The film within a film parallels the situation with Colombus and shows how nothing has really changed today- even the motivation "gold" is the same.
Anyway, I LOVE the Tivoli and the fact that it's not a megaplex with the "get you in and get you out" mentality. I love that they show independent and foreign films, two of my favorite types of movies. I love that it's in the Loop, which is one of my favorite areas.
