Our dear friend and director of “Take Off”, Fernando Barbosa is once again involved in a project that touches the lives of people in his native country of Bolivia: The Fight (Bolivia & Australia). The documentary is directed by Violeta Ayala and produced by Redelia Shaw, Daniel Fallshaw, Fernando Barbosa, Andrea Monasterios.

People with disabilities are amongst the most discriminated in Bolivia, with the majority living in dire poverty. Fed up with being ignored, a group of them decide to take their fight to the streets; Feliza and her husband Marcelo lead the way, as the protest grows into a movement. They embark on an unimaginable journey, marching 260 miles over the Andean mountains in their wheelchairs to go toe-to-toe with the Bolivian government.
