Director/Producers: CEFREC in co-production with Oxfam Quebec and Wapikoni mobile


A communicator takes a lucid and compassionate look into the fate of an isolated man due to his speech problems. 


CEFREC, the Bolivian Filmmaking Training Centre, was founded in 1989 in La Paz, Bolivia. Its primary mission is to provide audiovisual technical training to the indigenous peoples of Bolivia to assist in the production and distribution of their works. The broader vision that guides the CEFREC is empowerment through an increasingly sophisticated knowledge of film and video.

The Wapikoni Mobile gives young Aboriginals the opportunity to express themselves through video and music, to expand their horizons beyond their usual surroundings and allow them to shine in their own communities as throughout the world. While encouraging the emergence of diverse talents in Indigenous youth, the project facilitates exchange and communication between these young people and helps reduce their isolation. With their short films screenings, first within their own communities, then before both Indigenous and non-Indigenous audiences from all cultural backgrounds, Wapikoni Mobile’s young indigenous creators become ambassadors of a rich contemporary culture that is all too often unrecognized. The long term objective is to increase their knowledge of communication tools and establish an international network of First Nations creators who speak up.
