Los teleféricos is a story looking for a way out, a desired but final escape.

It is the story of Lucas, who decides to help his grandfather and leaves behind a city that always shows the same grey sceneries and buildings full of little homes. Lucas' grandfather needs a cable car; he is finding it hard to keep climbing. This short has charmed audiences and juries alike, including garnering special mention from the Iberoamerican Shorts Jury at the Guadalajara International Film Festival.

Tongues of Stone

Jason Blalock

Argentina/USA, Documentary, 2009 45 min, MiniDV/BetaSP, Color Spanish with English subtitles

 

The Rolling Stones have conceded that they are more popular in Argentina than any other country in the world, which is strange since they didn't play a single concert in Buenos Aires until 1995 - two decades into their career. But their absence didn't stop two generations of "rollingas" from sporting the Stones' trademark tongue and developing their own Stones-themed bands, bars, soccer clubs, restaurants, and fashion crazes. Through engaging and often hilarious interviews, performances, and archival footage, Tongues of Stone investigates the legendary status of the Rolling Stones in Argentina, and reveals the strange power of rock 'n' roll in the least likely of places.

María Teresa is a lonely and deeply repressed assistant teacher at an elite Buenos Aires private school. Obedient and willing, she accepts unquestioningly the school's rigid code of conduct and proud identification with the nation state. But her head professor's words about the "cancer of subversion" and need for total surveillance soon feed an unhealthy obsession with one of her students, and lead to an ensuing spiral of degradation and breakdown in discipline that parallels a popular rebellion beyond the school's ivy-covered walls.
