Summary La Recoleta Cemetery rests in the heart of one of Buenos Aires' swankiest neighborhoods. A city-within-a-city, it is an inward-facing place with its own interior geography. Like the Pere-Lachaise graveyard in France, La Recoleta is the final resting place for key figures of its nation's history - statesmen and poets, founding fathers and oppositional voices. And with Argentina's history so fraught with unrest, this relationship between the necropolis, the city and the nation proves fascinating ground for Nicolas Prividera's new film. A series of individuals read aloud excerpts from the writings of noteworthy Argentines interred within. Revealed are civil wars, battles with the country's native population, conflict between the city and the provinces, and years of military dictatorship. The readings are intercut with sequences of daily life in Recoleta, including the cemetery's custodians, whose work amid the tombs alludes to the ongoing construction of the nation's history.
