Hermes Paralluelo, 2011
Argentina | Spanish with English subtitles | Format: Blu-ray | 95 minutes

Paralluelo’s first documentary feature follows an extended family of cartoneros, people who earn their living sorting through garbage and selling it to recyclers. Focusing on 15-year-old Bebo and his two younger cousins, the film offers a candid view of lives lived in poverty and the insistent dreams that accompany them. Travelling through the streets of Cordoba on their horse-drawn cart, the boy talks about their dreams, philosophies and expectations.
