LA PANTALLA ANDINA
2021, Spain, 49min
Director: Carmina Balaguer Montón
A teacher from the Andes of north western Argentina accompanies a travelling cinema troup to bring films to the most isolated school in the province of Jujuy for the first time, making a 20-hour journey on foot to an altitude of 4,200 metres. They walk with a certainty: "Cinema is one more journey that transforms us as a society". A choral story spun by the teacher and school principal, Silvina Velázquez, whose tenacity also introduces a new paradigm for the women of the valleys.
