Barrio, la Calle Imaginaria| 19mins
Director: Jaime Cortes | Producer: Jaime Cortes
Focus Years: 2006 | Country: New Zealand
This short documentary is based in my own experiences of living in the same place for almost 25 years, from where all my old good friends have long gone, and a couple of huge towers were built just in the middle of everything destroying our sense of the neighborhood. Here I try to revive the feeling of closeness that I used to feel there, now amongst the unknown new people. "Barrio..." is about social relationships in public spaces, but most of all about hope and humanity in our cities.
