    • Synopsis
    • "We come from far away", shows the arrival of immigrants to Argentina towards the beginning of the XX century. The communitarian theatre group Catalinas Sur performs it from 1990. It shows the life of children and grandsons of those immigrants who integrated themselves in their diversity, with a strong spirit, to construct a neighborhood, a school, a soccer field, a square, a group of theater and today, to make this movie.
      It rescues the values of tenacity and solidarity that those immigrants developed, integrating their differences. And to transmit these values to new generations, with the conviction that the best way to recover them is to continue constructing, with that tenacity, that solidarity, and in this diversity.
