With this short documentary film, we hope to bring a social storytelling approach to our project that promotes environmental justice, the right to self-representation, and an analysis of the issues in the communities near the Matanza Riachuelo in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The voices of the residents of the communities shared in the film join a global conversation about housing, public health, environmentally unregulated industries, gender issues, and the human need for community. We hope this piece challenges each viewer to question their role in addressing these concerns in our increasingly globalized society.
