    WOODSTOCK — The Billings Farm and Museum will show the award-winning film “Even the Rain” as part of the third annual Woodstock Vermont Film Series at 3 p.m. today.

    Spanish director SebastiŠn, his executive producer, and crew are in Bolivia to shoot a motion picture about Christopher Columbus and his treatment of the native population. SebastiŠn chooses Bolivia as the location because of a tight film budget and things go smoothly until a conflict erupts over the privatization of the water supply.

    Sebastian hires local actors to appear in his film but one of them is a leading activist in the protest movement and the film’s completion is in doubt. “Even the Rain” was nominated for Best Film at the European Film Awards and has won 16 awards.

    Tickets for members are $9 for adults and $5 for children. Nonmembers are $11 for adults and $6 for children.

    For a list of screenings and ticket information, call 457-2355 or visit www.billingsfarm.org/filmfest. The Billings Farm and Museum is on Route 12 in Woodstock.
