Selfie

Loading...
Bosco (Santiago Alveru) has the typical life of a wealthy Madrid family offspring, living in a huge house in the outskirts, going out with flighty, attractive Paula (Clara Alvarado) and studying for the requisite MBA. But early on, his politico father is arrested and jailed on multiple corruption charges (something that's been happening a lot recently in real-world Spain) and suddenly his world falls apart. The family's possessions are seized; Paula will soon leave Bosco; and he's asked to drop his course of study. In other words, when the money goes down, everything else goes down with it — except, inevitably and comically, Bosco's sense of social superiority.

Memoria del Saqueo: A Social Genocide

Loading...
"After the fall of the military dictatorship in 1983, successive democratic governments launched a series of reforms purporting to turn Argentina into the world's most liberal and prosperous economy. Less than twenty years later, the Argentinians have lost literally everything: major national companies have been sold well below value to foreign corporations; the proceeds of privatizations have been diverted into the pockets of corrupt officials; revised labour laws have taken away all rights from employees; in a country that is traditionally an important exporter of foodstuffs, malnutrition is widespread; millions of people are unemployed and sinking into poverty; and their savings have disappeared in a final banking collapse.

Uprooted

Loading...
"Uprooted" seeks to bring attention to a mounting calamity inexplicably left out of the world's spotlight. The internal refugee crisis in Colombia is one of the worst in the world. Over 3.5 million people have been violently displaced since 1990. Most of them Black Colombians from the Pacific coast, an area prized for its national resources and development opportunities. The film explores the plight of Noris Mosquera, one of the more than 1 million Afrocolombians uprooted from their land. Her son dreams of leaving the refugee center for a burgeoning soccer academy in the capital city of Bogotá, and Noris will do all she can to make his dream a reality. Through her day-to-day plight, we delve into the tragedy of uprooting and discover the power of resilience. -- Verso of DVD cover.

Paulo Mendes DA Rocha: Entre Ideas y Dibujos

Loading...
This book revolves around the drawings and scale models especially selected by architect Paulo Mendes da Rocha, who was conferred the degree of Doctorate Honoris Causa by the Universidad Nacional del Litoral in 2009. The personal selection done by PMdR resulted in a publishing project that included the participation of a group of academics from Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina convened so that, by means of short texts, freely elaborated their perspective on those drawings. The book is, therefore, the result of a collective work whose purpose is to think the architecture from its most common resources: drawing and scale model. PMdR has also contributed with a text specially elaborated for this publication.
