Film: Heartache and promise on the Inca Trail
February 19, 2010 at 10:30AM
Against the backdrop of majestic, snow-capped mountains in Peru, a farmer named Feliciano says in his native Quechuan language, "I don't want my son to be the same as me." Mi Chacra (meaning, "my land"), a film by Bozeman-based filmmaker Jason Burlage, tells the story of the conflict between farmers who love the land and way of life in the country, but who see a brighter future for their children in the city. The images are incredibly stunning.
