One Street Away
One Street Away is an intimate and honest portrayal of the overlooked communities of Buenos Aires, Argentina. The spaces where its shanty towns can be found were, until very recently, left blank on maps, yet their associations with crime and poverty are well-known and often perpetuated by local media. Tourists visiting Buenos Aires are often warned not to wander into the so-called ‘villas miserias.’ But inside is a very different story. One Street Away follows three marginalised communities in Argentina’s capital as they strive to find their voices and build better lives for their families. Residing in self-made settlements, theirs is a story of humanity, community, and resilience in the face of economic and social inequality.
