“La Profesora”-The Teacher- is a video portrait of my grandmother that I made in Argentina just a year before she passed away. This portrait was filmed in her house which is also the place where I spent my entire childhood. She talked about her family, emigration from Italy to Argentina and her beloved profession as a teacher for more than 40 years. In this portrait she also plays the piano, as she does many of her activities such as writing a letter and talking about her life. This portrait shows issues of the cultural situation, identity and migration from Europe to South-America.
