Third Cinema revolutionary Jorge Sanjinés’ explosive docudrama is a powerful reenactment of the 1967 San Juan Massacre, in which the Bolivian military, acting on behalf of the government, murdered striking tin miners and their families in a surprise nighttime raid. Lent a vivid realism by the participation of witnesses and survivors, The Courage of the Peopletransmutes raw anger into a jolting Marxist manifesto.
