    • Synopsis
    • Luzmila Carpio opens the windows of her home in Paris and the camera flies out like a bird. The flight takes us to the Bolivia of her birth, in contact with her origins, the community she came from, the Andean landscapes where she grew up. A journey through the life and work of this Bolivian singer and musician, who has spread Quechua language and culture all over the world.
      Luzmila sings with the birds, she speaks to them and listens to them; she speaks with her land, with the rivers, she sings to the sun and the moon. Her songs speak about identity, the struggles of her people, spirituality, respect for the environment, the need to strive for a more just future in harmony on our planet.
      A journey with Luzmila to the depths of her land, to her memories, her struggles, into the heart of her country, connecting her with a language that is global, young and always questioning.
