Historia de una utopía (1999)

"Historia de una utopía" documents the first 16 years of theater work by Argentinean community theater ensemble Grupo de Teatro Catalinas Sur. Told in the words of the group itself (with an array testimonies by diverse group members), and illustrated with extensive video and photo documentation, this video maps out the origins and philosophy of the Catalinas Sur, while showcasing the variety of outdoor and indoor theater projects they have embarked on since 1983 --from "Los Comediantes," performed in Plaza Malvinas in 1983, to "El Fulgor Argentino," here shown at the group's own Galpón in 1999.
