This is a tribute film to the amazing Montserrat typeface, recently designed by my friend Julieta Ulanovsky. A tribute, also, to the Montserrat neighbourhood in my hometown Buenos Aires, which inspired the font. And finally a tribute to Jorge Luis Borges. The text is an extract from his wonderful poem Break Of Day (Amanecer) from the book Fervor de Buenos Aires (1923).
