Juan Carlos Zambrana Marchetti was born in Santa Cruz, Bolivia, a conservative society where servitude was notorious. Since Childhood, he has identified himself with the repressed indigenous people, pejoratively called “Camba,” in the eastern lowlands of the country, and “Indian,” in the high mountains.
Zambrana had acted in movies and on television, for which he has written several screenplays, including the made for-TV feature film “Ley de Fuga,” in which he denounces human rights violations.
Zambrana immigrated to the United States, and later, during the surge of the social movements in Bolivia, he found himself frequently explaining the reality faced by the Bolivian people, whom conservatives described as groups of corrupt, ignorant and resentful people. Anti-imperialist Indians who opposed the United States for no reason at all. His concerns led him to dig deeper into history until he discovered the Pandora´s box that resulted in Secrets of State.
He is correspondent in the United States, for Cambio, the newspaper of the Plurinatinal State Of Bolivia.
