MAP OF LATIN AMERICAN DREAMS

MAPA DE SUEÑOS LATINOAMERICANOS

Between 1992 and 2013 the Argentine artist, Martín Weber, photographed people in Latin America and asked them to write their dreams with chalk on a wooden board.

 

Decades later, he wondered if any of those wishes had been fulfilled. This film is a new journey in the search for the same people to give testimony from their lives. For the last 8 years, Martín has filmed in Argentina, Peru, Nicaragua, Cuba, Brazil, Colombia, Guatemala and Mexico. During his trip, he witnessed the economic, political, social and military violence that mark the continent.

 

Martín shows the consequences of migration and the degradation of the social fabric. His experiences reveal the fractures and gaps in the dreams portrayed and the struggle between hope and despair, between emigration and remaining home.
