Scope and Contents:
Full film record of the American Universities Field Staff "Faces of Change" film series in Bolivia. Footage was shot in a high Andes valley of western Bolivia in the villages of Ayata (a primarily mestizo town) and Vitocota (an Aymara Indian community), both located in Munecas Province, Department of La Paz. The project explored the nature of Altiplano social structure as manifest between the residents of these related communities, focusing on social and cultural factors which unite as well as divide them. Documentation includes: planting and harvesting of potatoes and ocha; manufacture of chicha (corn beer); sheep herding; market days; the Fiesta of Santiago held conjointly between Vitocota and Ayata and the Fiesta of San Lorenzo in Ayata; dispute management and settlement which accompanies these celebrations; syncretic rites (using coca leaves) performed at the beginning of the Aymara year (August 1); the role of Aymara women in the Andean economy; and the syncretic nature of Altiplano Bolivian religious and magical beliefs and practices. The edited films VIRACOCHA, THE CHILDREN KNOW, POTATO PLANTERS, ANDEAN WOMEN, THE SPIRIT POSSESSION OF ALEJANDRO MAMANI, and MAGIC AND CATHOLICISM were produced from this film project.
