Edited film explores the paradox of Aymara women's lives in the Bolivian highlands. Women believe the dominant Hispanic ideal that women should be subservient to men and to only undertake tasks appropriate to their limited strength and intelligence even as Aymara culture recognizes equal gender contributions to the community and family survival through cooperation and reciprocity.

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.

Interviewed in Washington, D.C., attorney Michelle Jacobs (born 1954 NY) spoke about her early life, family, education, and work as a law professor as well as the individuals who most influenced her. She explained how she identifies herself. Jacobs expressed her thoughts on ethnicity and how ethnic identification affected her life; her thoughts on black community, empowerment, independence, and self-determination; and her thoughts on identifying the black community as one group or many different groups. She stated groups/affiliations she belongs to/activities she is involved in, any social activism work, and how she stays in touch with African Americans and the African American community, including publications, websites, other communication/media, conferences, and celebrations/events. She explained how emphasizing African descent in one's appearance relate to social change in America.

She explained how knowing history influences what is happening now and in the future; where women fit in in terms of passing on history; and what African American women can accomplish personally in their everyday lives to affect change. Jacobs described what she would change, what she would build, and what she would eliminate with unlimited power and/or resources.
