“Pachakuti – A political theater of ontological conflicts” is a research-creation project in the form of an artist’s film. It is based on the re-scripting of the transcriptions of speeches during the Bolivian Constituent Assembly of 2005-2006, archived by the Documentary Fund of the Constituent Assembly of La Paz in Bolivia. This archive documents the long process which led to granting legal status to Pachamama. The re-scripting of this diplomacy between “cosmologies which intended to live together” (Landivar, 2018), is interpreted by non-actors of the Aymara scene.
The film is currently being edited.
