We were so pleased to present this talk by Elizabeth Sissi Gill. In 2014 Sissi resolved to investigate her maternal grandfather’s shadowy past, a mission that took her to Vienna, the US – and to La Paz, where newspapers from the 1930s revealed an extraordinary story of an unjust accusation of murder, a 10-year prison sentence and a hero’s death fighting for Bolivia in the Chaco War.
We are very pleased to host a double bill of films by two young Bolivian film makers preceded by a 30-minute webinar moderated by A-BS council member Zihan Jin in which the two directors, Nayra Antezana and Miguel Hilari, will introduce their films and discuss their work.
On Sunday 13th December, the British Bolivian Community was delighted to stage its first community and international event, the Música para Respirar 24/7 (Music to Breathe 24/7) launched by the Bolivian Chamber Music Society which perfectly aligns with its purpose and front-line efforts undertaken throughout this year.
We have the pleasure to present this EBook that contains the papers from the conference “Revolutions in Bolivia”, celebrated in March 2018.
Guadalupe Peres-Cajias will talk about on how “fiestas” in public spaces, located in zones usually inhabited by traditional middle and upper classes, illustrate the social tensions produced by the social mobility of popular classes in La Paz.
