The Great Movement (El Gran Movimiento)
Institute of Contemporary Arts
June 2022
El Gran Movimiento, dir. Kiro Russo, Bolivia / France / Qatar / Switzerland 2021, 85 min., Spanish with English subtitles, 15


The Great Movement is both a folk horror and a singular city symphony that lays bare the plight of the working classes. After a week-long walk, Elder and his fellow miners arrive in the Bolivian city of La Paz to demand their right to work. Through hypnotic dancing, wondrous urban landscapes and a cast of nonprofessional actors, Kiro Russo blends the fantastical with the real. Inspired by his native city and influenced by both Soviet montage and Indigenous Bolivian traditions, Russo presents a work that is as much a fever dream as it is an anthropological and social investigation into this vast Latin American capital.

The film premiered in the UK as part of FRAMES of REPRESENTATION 2021
