NOT SO MODERN TIMES (TIEMPOS MENOS MODERNOS) (Argentina, 2011, 95 min.)
Washington, D.C. Premiere In a remote cabin in the Patagonian Andes, Payaguala, an elderly native Tehuelche gaucho, lives a solitary and contented life. He enjoys his independence, tending his sheep and chickens, and occasionally playing the guitar for visiting tourists. One day the Ministry of Social Development sends him a package. He ignores it indifferently until his only friend, the traveling peddler Felipe, visits. The contents of the package, a television and a telephone, invade his little cabin and turn his life upside down. In Spanish and Tehuelche with English subtitles. Directed by Simon Franca.
Introduced by Francisco Lopez Achaval, Cultural Attaché, Embassy of Argentina.
