While her husband is on his way to the market, a peasant woman is raped and murdered. Her widower carefully plans his revenge.
Sanjines made his first feature film, And So It Is (1966), under the auspices of the Bolivian Film Institute, of which he was named director in 1965. A landmark in the history of Bolivian cinema, Ukamau is a sympathetic depiction of the social problems of the Andean peasantry shot exclusively in Aymara, an indigenous language. Because of the controversy surrounding the film, Sanjines was fired from his post, but went on to become one of the most successful of Latin America’s leftist filmmakers.
