THE ORIGIN, seven lives (2013/15)

This work was selected for FIBA, 2015.

Seven inhabitants of a town in the province of Buenos Aires get together with the aim of preparing for a poetry contest between neighboring towns. In an absurd and crazy way, fantasies start to grow about what it would mean to win and be “the chosen ones”. This will be the engine of a handful of lives that struggle internally against their destiny marked by the ¨rich people¨, the church and the constant gaze of the other.
