  • The Dignity of the Nobodies

    2005. Argentina. Directed by Fernando E. Solanas. Coproduction with Brazil. Solanas, one of Latin America's great militant filmmakers, captures indelible stories and testimonies of social resistance by Argentina's "have-nots" in the fight against unemployment and hunger. This second in a planned quartet of films about Argentina's political and social present, with roots in the classic Hour of the Furnaces, exemplifies partisan cinema of solidarity. Mini-epics told in chapters are dominated by individual characters—anonymous heroes with collective proposals to defeat helplessness and reconstruct hope in the face of the devastation wrought by globalization, neo-liberal politics, and political corruption. In Spanish; English subtitles. 120 min.

In the Film exhibition Iberoamérica: That's the Way We Are
