A Place Called Los Pereyra
Streaming video - 2015
In the impoverished and extremely isolated region of Northern Argentina known as “The Impenetrable”, the children of a tiny elementary school eagerly await an annual visit from their “Godmothers”: a charity mission from the city of Buenos Aires. When the “Godmothers” arrive, life in the hamlet of Los Pereyra changes completely. Both delighted and bewildered, the children learn many things from their cosmopolitan visitors, including a glimpse of privileged life and, perhaps, a realiza...tion of their own poverty. Subtle, sweet, often humorous, but also poignant, A Place Called Los Pereyra examines adolescence, charity and the clash of two worlds.
