SFCC International Film Festival Tuesday, “Even the Rain” (Spain/Mexico). As a director and his crew shoot a controversial film about Christopher Columbus in Cochabamba, Bolivia, they encounter local people rising up against plans to privatize the water supply. The uprising closely documents the true events of 2000 when local Bolivians fought for water rights. The title of this epic film refers to a law that made it illegal for anyone to access water, “even the rain.” The story, a movie inside a movie, reveals parallels between indigenous resistance 500 years ago and today. Through many stunning, powerful scenes, this film becomes a keen observation of how history repeats itself. Gael Garcia Bernal, well known for his social and political activism, stars in this film. Presented by Bonnie Brunt, SFCC Dean of Visual and Performing Arts. 7:15 p.m. Garland Theatre, 924 W. Garland Ave. $4.50. (509) 533-3222.
