Quién mató a la llamita blanca? = Who killed the white llama? by Rodrigo Bellott( Visual )

5 editions published in 2006 in Spanish and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the snowy mountains of Bolivia, in the highest city in the world, an infamous Indian crime duo known as "Los Tortolitos" agrees to transport 50 kilograms of cocaine to the Brazilian Amazon for a shadowy figure named "El Negro." The couple's journey takes them through deserts, valleys, and cities and into the heart of Bolivia, a world rich in color, music, and joy on the one hand and poverty, corruption, and racial marginalization on the other... Bellott charges into his story with all the unhinged exuberance of a first-time filmmaker, employing a small arsenal of clever camera tricks and effects to keep the energy up, while following a huge cast of characters as their paths cross one by one. Equal parts road movie, crime drama, and social critique."--Austin Chronicle

1 edition published in 2007 in Spanish and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Un documental sobre el 'poder' de la hoja de coca y cómo este ha sido utilizado desde tiempos remotos no solo para la sanación, ritos sagrados indígenas o aplacar el hambre de los pobres, sino de cómo los pobres had sido utilizados para explotar la coca con fines políticos. El documental cuenta sobre el interés de los norteamericanos de controlar el comercio de la coca, el tráfico de la cocaina y cómo sus rivales cocaleros finalmente se hacen con el poder utilizando la hoja sagrada como un simobolo politico hasta la posesión de Evo Morales, dirigente cocalero, como presidente de Bolivia. Habla también de los usos de la coca en su forma tradicional y la necesaria distinción que se debe hacer entre coca y cocaina."
