Voces Argentinas

Voces Argentinas 2002 from zoe young on Vimeo.

 

Interwoven voices from the streets of Buenos Aires tell how it feels to be Argentinian as the country plunged fast from the first world to the third. Resisting the dire personal and social consequences with poetry, song, laughter and practical solidarity, this film records a people and a city staying very much alive through the very worst of times. This lyrical documentary film covers events of December 19-20 2001, the popular assemblies, bartering, workers’ occupation of a factory, and the unemployed piquetero movement.
