Papa's Tango

Director: Michiel van Jaarsveld.
Hannah’s parents are divorced. Her father is from Argentina and her mother is Dutch. Hannah is a dreamer. She loves to dance and adores her father. For Hannah dancing and her father are two things that belong together. Her father Nano feels miserable in The Netherlands ever since he divorced Hannah’s mother. He is homesick and wants to go back to his family and friends in Buenos Aires. But leaving The Netherlands also means saying goodbye to his daughter. After the divorce of her parents Hannah’s mother started a relationship with a new man. He lives with them now. Hannah gets along with him, yet she misses her father a lot. By listening to her father’s tango music she can still dance with him in her mind.

Short Film Corner: Argentine women motivate stories

user
 With 15 films at the Short Film Corner in the Marché du Film at this year's Cannes film festival, Argentina is well-represented. Two films, in particular, are worth mention for their driving feminine leads.Golanzo Tobal's Cynthia todavia tiene las llaves, part of the Semaine de la Critique, tells the story of a woman living her life as a ghost in her ex-boyfriend's empty apartment while he is at work. It is easy to sympathize with her as she offers frank conversation to her audience about all...

Troyanos

#
Director: Vera Fabrykant.
El skinhead es un tipo pelado, lleva borceguíes, a veces tiradores, están los que andan tatuados de pies a cabeza. Lo que muchos no saben es que hay algunos que llevan un parche con la figura de un casco troyano de perfil, negro con letras blancas que dicen “SHARP”. Es decir, Skinhead Against Racial Predjuice (Skinhead contra el prejuicio racial). También se llaman a sí mismos “antifascistas”. La cultura skinhead existe desde hace 40 años. En Buenos Aires ya lleva más de 20 y sin embargo los prejuicios siguen intactos. La gente les tiene miedo y la prensa los difama. Son considerados una “tribu urbana” en el mejor de los casos y en el peor (y el más común) se los tilda de neo nazis. Lejos de eso, el movimiento skinhead se origina en 1969 en Inglaterra, cuando la llegada de una ola de inmigración de Jamaica irrumpe en los barrios obreros. Los jamaiquinos comienzan a juntarse con los “mods” y se dan cuenta que no sólo tienen en común su origen de clase trabajadora, sino que además comparten el gusto por la música negra. Por ende, el skinhead nace, nada más y nada menos, que de la unión de blancos y negros, siendo éste el verdadero espíritu del movimiento. Lo curioso es que a pesar de lo que los medios de comunicación afirmen, la mayor parte de los skinheads de Buenos Aires siguen esta tradición. Troyanos mostrará la parte de la historia británica (cómo nació y se fue transformando el movimiento), pero hará especial hincapié en cómo fue recibido y adaptado en Buenos Aires. Será un documental con un estilo formal expositivo, en el que se usarán principalmente entrevistas y material de archivo. Una vez desarraigado el prejuicio del espectador común, se mostrarán las distintas aristas de una tan interesante como poco explorada cultura.

AWKA LIWEN – REBELLION AT DAWN

user
Director: Mariano Aiello and Kristina Hille.
Awka Liwen is the story of the massacres against Native Peoples in Argentina (nineteenth century) for the theft of their lands and the current discrimination against them and their descendants. Those who funded the genocide against Indigenous Peoples they always opposed to paying higher taxes and reacted with extreme violence when they felt threatened in their class interests: deaths of rural workers during the strikes of 1921 in Patagonia and extermination of 30000 Argentines during the dictatorship. The racism against the native argentine was not accidental: it was the alibi to justify the robbery of lands to Indian and the Gaucho by the descendants of Europeans. The current rebellion of agribusiness leaders seeking "European" price and costs "Argentinian" to food embodies a profound contempt for the majority. The division of the Argentines, the eternal "trench" can be closed. A government attempt to do so through a more equitable redistribution of wealth. But again the landowners are opposed to losing their class privileges. They want a coup. The people said, NOT MORE!
