Corrientes (Portrait of a Street)

The one that never sleeps, the one of the theaters,
bars, coffe, pizza and book stores.
From "Once" to the "City", from "Abasto" to "Luna Park",
going shopping and to work, or to look and walk.
Born downtown and dodging the "Obelisco",
crosses the city, until "Chacarita",
or backwards, is the same.
When young it was narrow, half, one more street.
Modernity has widened it, which follows who knows.
Always to enjoy, to suffer and admires it
Corrientes, the liveliest street in Buenos Aires.

Corrientes, portrait of a street is a documentary short film, an audiovisual collage that chooses to travel through images and characters, sounds and words, the central segment or the most populous, of the classic avenue of Buenos Aires. Combining images, in black and white, fixed and moving, attempt a look of as many possibles, about the life, day and night, of its people and its landscape. An urban portrait that proposes to stop and observe what we don´t see but is in sight. An endless play with thousands of actors, hundreds of scenarios and stories that change or recur every day, in which we are always part of the cast.
This time, let's get down the stage and recline the armchair to enjoy Corrientes from the outside.
