by Martín Rejtman - Documentary - Argentina - 2007 - 54 min - HD
Every year in mid October the Bolivian community in Buenos Aires celebrates its most important Patronal festivity: the party of Nuestra Señora de Copacabana. Hundreds of music and dance groups from all over the country, some even arriving from Bolivia, get together in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of Charrua for a big parade, in a celebration that transcends religion.
Copacabana takes this celebration as a starting point. Focusing on rehearsals of dance and music groups, photo albums, and the border between Bolivia and Argentina, among other things, the film threads a simultaneously distant and close portrait of the Bolivian community from Buenos Aires.
