The Streets

  • Argentina
Audio Tracks

In Puerto Pirámides, a small town in Patagonia, Argentina, the streets are unnamed. Julia, teacher in the only school in town, develops a school project that commit the students in a common objective: to give names to the streets. Luna, Eli, Maxi, Renzo and Juan are some of the children involved in the process of interviewing the inhabitants of the town with the idea of knowing their history and their suggestions for the street's names. In that journey, they hear different stories where the ancient residents, the sea, fishermen, rural labour, and the coasts are the essential issues.
