Follow Your Way – Argentina
Argentina… It’s amazing that you can find so many different worlds in one single country. Sometimes you can feel almost like in Europe, sometimes you start wondering if you’re already in Bolivia. On the top of Argentina’s amazing identity lies enormous labirynth of Buenos Aires with it’s own contrasts. Villa miseria surrounded by modern skyscrapers, homeless sleeping next to the fancy restaurants and goverment buildings. Weak currency and high inflation rate touch everyday life of many Argentinians. Deforestation in the north and tentacles of Monsanto are even more serious problems because of having long term effects.
I know that trying to describe the beautiful soul of Argentina with words is pointless… I’m not sure if my images caught at least a little piece of it but I’m sure that I left piece of my heart somwhere across the ocean. Thank you Argentina. Thank you South America.
** IMPORTANT NOTE: This video is not trying to deliver any political ideologies. Characters like Ernesto Guevara, Eva Perón or Jorge Videla are part of Argentina’s history and by introducing them I don’t mean to judge anything. I’m fully aware of controversies and don’t want to be a part of dispute. **
