Bolivia has a variety of natural and urban landscapes within it's 1million kilometers of
national territory. These landscapes offer a variety of different possibilities when
filming principal photography. Bolivia has lush jungles located in the amazon,
mountains, valleys, the mountains of the Andes, deserts and virgin locations that
have never been fully exploited in cinema.
Within the last 10 years, Bolivia has expanded it's film and television productions both independently and internationally. Several renowned international movies has been shot in the country such as “Ché Part 2” (S. Soderbergh with Benicio del Toro & Oscar Isaac), “Blackthorn” (Mateo Gil with Sam Shepard). “Our Brand is Crisis” (David Gordon Green with Sandra Bullock, Billy Bob Thornton & Reynaldo Pacheco), “También la lluvia” (Icíar Bollaín with Gael García Bernal & Luis Tosar) and most recently “Star Wars Episode VIII” (George Lucas with Carrie Fisher & Mark Hamill)
Magical realism is alive in Bolivia.
Consider this: Bolivia is in the unique position of sharing a border with five very distinct South American countries, sharing some of the best features of all five of them. Think indigenous culture, the wildlife-filled Amazon Rainforest, snow-capped Andean peaks, and multi-hued Atacama Desert all in one place.
