A school video with huge political content aroused the indignation of artists and journalists
November 22, 2012
A school video with huge political content was strongly criticized by artists such as filmmaker Juan José Campanella and journalists as Quentin and Osvaldo Bazán.
The video is a dramatization by second graders at a school in Santa Fe, where topics such as the stocks to the dollar and a supposed war between poor and rich.
One character -Rosaura- talk with her lawyer to “organize a cacerolazo” after learning that the president “narrowed the amount of dollars that can be bought and sold.”
“This president thinks only in poor people! What about the rich?” Rosaura exclaims. Then she adds: “My plan failed, I realize that I live in a country where only poor people are attended. They receive plans that encourage laziness. I just wanted to be richer, have dollars.”
This aroused the indignation of Campanella, director of the Oscar-winning film “The Secret in Their Eyes”. The filmmaker said: “What this causes is very complex for 140 characters. Anger, outrage, yes. But most of all, pain, a lot of pain.”
He added: “It would be interesting to see a repudiation by the government of this use of innocents”.
