A tour of Buenos Aires between nature and underground. A portrait of an unique megalopolis. Late in the night, in the hearth of Abasto, El Chino sings postmodern tango with his Orquesta Tipica Fernandez Fierro in front of an always soldout audience. Also La Peña Electrica blends tradition with punk and electronics. Somewhere in the flea market you can cross into Tony Valiente, an icon of Buenos Aires’s flea market. Carlos Gardel visited him various time in dreams, predicting the future. The queen of Spain own one of his creation.
Tierra Santa is a theme park about religion. Every hour there is a resurrection in form of a 30 meters tall Jesus that like Mazinger comes out from a mountain. You can enjoy the Creation and have the chance to see airplanes crossing the crucifixion as the park is few hundred meters from an airport. Adam and Eve reminds old fashioned porn stars. Mystical. Lysergic. Gauchos during the Rural are hanging out in town. La Rural is in the center of Buenos Aires’ center, attracts various hundreds of thousands of people and hosts several attractions including the Argentinian cow of the year, a beauty contest followed by a huge audience. Villa 21 is one of the most dangerous “favelas” in Buenos Aires. 47.000 people live in a giant slum where everything can happen. It is one of the most dangerous place in South America. Julio Arrieta created an agency of casting and location for directors who need to shoot in the villa. He has been invited in Spain and Marocco for a documentary about himself. And he had the chance to meet Alan Parker director of Evita (featuring Madonna).
In Buenos Aires, any time, in any corner, suddenly, you can find more and more.
