Even the Rain Trailer Starring Gael Garcia Bernal

Even the Rain Trailer: Gael García Bernal Asks Big Questions

I know it's Monday, so your brain may not be fully functioning yet, but here's some heavy material for it to digest. In this newly released trailer for the Spanish film Even the Rain, Gael García Bernal stars as Sebastián, a filmmaker who travels to Bolivia for his latest project: a movie which recreates the colonization of the Americas by Christopher Columbus. But while Sebastián makes his film, he begins to realize that not much has changed from Columbus's day. The local people who work as his extras are fighting the government for affordable water, and Sebastián starts to question his own exploitative way of doing business.

This is definitely a film that wants to make viewers think, and think hard. I'm already incredibly moved by the preview, which feels like a documentary in parts. Give it a look, and share your thoughts after the jump.
