The documentary UMATURKA – The Call of the Water follows the aymara community of Quillacas, who continue to challenge the encroaching modern world and culture by performing the annual Umaturka ritual to call the clouds and rains following the dry season. UMATURKA serves as a memory of the Quillacas’ customs, culture and traditions that form part of the present, reality and life in the contemporary Andes. Giovanna Miralles and Dr. Peter Wilkin completed the different stages of production for the documentary with their own resources and are seeking support to cover the costs of image post-production. Luzmila Carpio, a North Potosi artist, singer, composer, former Bolivian Ambassador to France, contributed one of her songs for the documentary. Miralles and Wilkin will exhibit the trailer, give a talk on the film and the crowdfunding campaign launched to finish the film.
