    • Synopsis
    • "The City of Replicas" is a portrait of Famaillá, a fascinating town in the province of Tucumán, northern Argentina, where a particular phenomenon is taking place: it is said that in every block there are two or three families that have a pair of twins. This is why it is just natural that the town is governed by the "Orellana Twins", two brothers that have been taking turns in the intendancy of the municipality for more than fifteen years, and that are obsessed with replicas. The golden thread of this documentary is the symmetry that exists between the twins and the replicas, where the copy and the fake result more real than what is being imitated.
