A PLACE CALLED

LOS PEREYRA

About the film

Synopsis

“One of the best documentaries to touch down in Toronto this year.” – Adam Nayman, AV Club

 

In the impoverished and extremely isolated region of Northern Argentina known as “El Impenetrable”, the children of a detached elementary school eagerly await a visit from their “Godmothers”, a charity mission from the city of Buenos Aires. When they arrive, life in the hamlet of Los Pereyra changes completely. Both delighted and bewildered, the children learn many things from their cosmopolitan visitors, including a glimpse of privileged life and, perhaps, a realization of their own poverty.
