    • Synopsis
    • Mechita, which yesterday was a fabulous railway pole, today is a knot of rusty rails embedded in the Buenos Aires plain. A city split in half by political boundaries between Bragado and Alberti where night populated by dogs and sorrows the handful of houses that saw the glory and today live lost.
      Two local undertaken, each one by hand, the immense task of exposing their village through art. One is Juan Doffo that through his work crosses Mechita reflecting their stylized mountains and dirt roads. In his last fotoperformances used night and fire, making build a bridge between your personal imagery and collective sense of the local community. The other is "Pirulo" Giommi, self-taught blacksmith who feeds his work of railway lags that mobilized the economy and today rust nostalgia.
      Can art save us from ruin and despair? Mechita between heaven and earth leads us through the history and dreams of a people is becoming a cultural beacon throughout the Pampas.
