The Andean Screen

View on the Pragda STREAM site

A Northwestern Argentinian teacher leads a mobile cinema crew to the most isolated school in the Jujuy high-altitude valleys, undergoing a 20-hour journey on foot in adverse conditions. Their arrival involves us in the high-altitude educational values, portraying the isolation in the Andean worlds and how communities engage with the earth. The Andean Screen is a poetic analogy between cinema and travel; a choral story spun by Silvina Velázquez, principal of the school, whose tenacity introduces a new paradigm for the women of the valleys.

Ideal for educators seeking to explore themes of education, empowerment, and cultural resilience, this ethnographic documentary offers a captivating exploration of the human experience in one of the world's most remote and enchanting landscapes.
