Ramon Rojas - Sueños de Chozas

Director: Maria Rosa Andreotti.
“I should be given the title of Summa Cum Laude bum”, states Ramon Rojas to camera in the first minutes of this documentary portrait shot in the streets of Buenos Aires by visual artist Maria Rosa Andreotti. Musician, street poet, bum by own choice, anarchist, Rojas is one of those urban characters so marginal to the system that is virtually invisible to a majority of society. “Ramón Rojas – Sueños de chozas” [“Ramón Rojas – Dreams of huts”] looks at the experience and outlook of a man whose culture is his haven and his value of survival. The documentary looks into Ramón’s paradoxes as well as at the decisions to which one may be driven, almost to the limit of losing the most intimate thing we have – the right to privacy, to fantasy and hence, to individual freedom, for all of which a home or a refuge is absolutely necessary. Re-discovered by Andreotti’s camera, Rojas is featured as an essential part of the current social and economic Argentine landscape.
