The Names of the Flowers

Los Nombres de Las Flores

Canada, USA, Bolivia, Qatar 2019 Fiction cor 79 min.
Bolivia celebrates the 50th anniversary of Ernesto “Che” Guevara’s death. Julia, a teacher from the countryside, is invited to tell her story to the world: she gave shelter to the guerilla and served them peanut soup, while Che recited a poem about flowers, only a few hours before this death. The invitation, however, is cancelled when other women claim the “soup and flowers” story as their own.
