La professora

Video Full HD 5'23''


“La Profesora”-The Teacher- is a portrait of my grandmother I made in Argentina just a year before she passed away. It was filmed in her house, which was also the place I lived my entire childhood. In an interview I made to her, she talked about her family, emigration from Italy to Argentina and her beloved profession as a teacher for more than 40 years. This portrait shows issues of the cultural situation of the country I am coming from, the new identity of the migrants coming from Europe to South-America.
