Help EVEN THE RAIN to Get to More Theatres: Go This Weekend

We are making a big push today to get word out about Even the Rain/Tambien La Lluvia across the country - and we need your help. If people don't see it this weekend we may not be able to stay in theatres or get new ones.

People are asking how can I see it in Arizona, Texas, Florida. The answer is that you who have seen it need to tell friends in cities where the film is open, TO GO THIS WEEKEND!

If you've seen the film please tell friends, share links, share the event on Facebook, e-mail friends, write a review on,, or any site in your city!

You can also get an e-flyer for the film off of our website to forward to friends.

Here is a clip from Even the Rain. In the film within a film, Sebastian, played by Gael Garcia Bernal, is holding an open casting call to find extras for the film. Because they are shooting cheaply in Bolivia they are using Quechua indigenous people instead of the Taino people of the Caribbean that Columbus encountered in real life. This is one of the ironies that screenwriter Paul Laverty (The Wind that Shakes the Barley, Bread and Roses) infuses into the script which juxtaposes the abuses of the Spanish conquistadors 500 years ago with the exploitation that continues today.
