The degraded socio-economic condition of Argentina leading to the December 2001 rebellions, and its consequent social chaos analyzed by focusing on real people from Buenos Aires poorest shantytowns, crumbling hospitals, and women middle class farmers fighting multi national banks that are shamelessly appropriating their farmlands.
The Dignity of the Nobodies (La Dignidad de los Nadies), directed by Fernando E. Solanas – U.S. Premiere. Following his analysis in A Social Genocide (TFF 2004) of globalization\'s role in Argentina\'s economic disaster, this master of the social documentary takes a more optimistic stance here. By celebrating the small, daily victories of thousands of \"nobodies,\" he shows that individual and collective acts might be able to change the world after all.

\"The weakness of humanity is our blindness, a cultural blind spot which some call ignorance, in which a selfish and immature ego claims the world as ours and prevents us from seeing ourselves as a part of the world. Kinship with all life is a biological (evolutionary) fact, but our culture ways of doing, perceiving and relating, blind us to this reality.\" -
