Awka Liwen - Rebellion at Dawn

user
Director: Mariano Aiello and Kristina Hille.
Long Synopsis Awka Liwen is the story of the struggle for wealth distribution in Argentina since the genocide of native peoples and the theft of their ancestral territories. For this is was created a culture of racism against the Indian and the gaucho who still lives in society. In 2008, the same sectors as they appropriated indigenous lands attempted a coup to keep their class privileges. There are two competing models of country that the film deconstructs from the following core concepts: Inequality in the distribution of resources. A very small group of people in the country seized huge tracts of its territory killing, enslaving, or expelling their natural owners. Then, the same factional group opposed in the past and present to pay taxes. The history repeats itself cyclically. Industrialization versus commodity-exporting economy. Since the landlord class is consolidated in the country and integrating into the global economy (under the United Kingdom until World War II), that group support a "free trade” policies. The great land owners believes that allowing free entry of products manufactured in the UK - without trying to develop a local industry - is going to give them the possibility of exporting primary products of their great farms with prices more profitable. This class always opposed and oppose today to the country's industrialization. Structural racism. Argentina is defined as a country of European immigrants. But when you look in the mirror is mestizo. The killing of Indigenous Peoples didn’t exterminate complete but maintein the status quo of the colonial over-exploitation. Injustice. Over 500 years have passed of the dispossession of their lands and now, again, are expelled en masse from the land they have left (usually the worst). Globalization. The boundaries of capitalism more primitive and aggressive spread, and go where they previously could not had interest in arrive A case study of Leleque in the huge farm of Benetton. One People, One Culture. Aboriginal peoples are holders of an ancient culture that is partly obscured, if not denigrated by the dominant culture (European Judeo-Christian). Short Synopsis Awka Liwen is the story of the struggle for wealth distribution in Argentina since the genocide of native peoples and the theft of their ancestral territories. For it is was created a culture of racism against the Indian and the Gaucho who still lives in society. In 2008, the same sectors as they appropriated indigenous lands attempted a coup to keep their class privileges.
