Mountakha is a Senegalese man and a newcomer in Buenos Aires. In Dakar he used to work as a truck driver and he tries to get that job in this new city as well. While working as a street vendor in the meantime, he wonders if his destiny might be related to acting, as some of his new friends have a special bond with cinema.

A tone poem of a film that explores a city hidden within a city. Through meditative songs and sounds we unpeel the layers of Mountakha’s life as he grapples with work, being undocumented, maintaining connection with a family so far away, and the warmth of home versus the joys of the life he has found in Argentina.

Dir: Andrés Guerberoff; Length: 1hr 1

Screened alongside short film: Traana (Temporary Migrant) (A film by Raphaël Grisey, Kàddu Yaraax, Bouba Touré)
