"A semi-documentary account of the indigenous Chipayas communities on the altiplano. The film, through the story of a young indigenous girl, depicts the customs and difficult living conditions of one of the oldest cultures in the Andes. ... There are two principal axes to the story: the first, somewhat banal, is a love story between a schoolteacher and a handsome alligator hunter. The second documents the collective efforts of the people of the community of Rurrenabaque to install facilities for fresh water."--Alfonso Gumucio-Dagron

"Showing the cultural artifacts of indigenous culture throughout the territory of the state, it begins in the Andes, moves through the tropical regions, and makes a return to the Altiplano--the spatial/cultural origin space of the integrated mestizo nation. The historical past of a cultural mixing (mestizaje) is collapsed into the visible artifcacts of a timeless national heritage, highlighted in the images of godlike figures of an indigenous pantheon beautifully carved into the front of a Catholic church." Jeffrey D. Himpele, Circuits of culture, p. 124

1 edition published in 2010 in Spanish and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Vellard also made the film Los Urus about Irohito, its history and economy, in which two Uchumataqu speakers have short appearances. An elderly woman tells two times how the ancient population of the Uru existed before the sun came out, announcing the appearance of the 'new human' population and destroying the Uru. ... A likewise elderly man, possibly Carlos Kispe, also says something in Uchumataqu, which is not translated. However, native speakers of modern Chipaya are capable of understanding the basic idea of what is said. According to them, the man views the drought and its consequences for his community as a punishment for misbehavior and says further that there are no animals left which they could hunt."--Katja Hannss, Uchumataqu, p. 48
