Comrade Evo

Three years in the making and featuring rare access to Evo Morales, ‘Evo, Presidente’ explores the inner workings of power in Bolivia. Morale’s reforms, aimed at helping the poor, threaten the interests of rich landowners and the business elite. There have been numerous plots against him. Filmmaker Rodrigo Vazquez spent three years following Morales, from his presidential campaign through the years of bitter struggle for constitutional and economic reform.
