Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires
Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires

Sometimes a space of barely one kilometer can hide a universe of interoceanic adventures and family sagas. In the two blocks of Arribeños street between Juramento and Olazábal, sits what is known as Chinatown, a place that hides the possibility of several parallel universes between its two borders, the ones of the generations of Taiwanese and Chinese people who came to Argentina –those who barely speak Spanish, those who work hard to learn Mandarin, those who feel porteños to the core, and those who still dream of returning to their homeland, 40 years later. Marcos Rodríguez is generous and intelligent enough to avoid struggling against this amount of stories and information, and basically gives away his images to the testimonies of those who live their everyday life in Arribeños. And he does so through a seemingly (and only seemingly) simple structure and an amazing eye that is able to capture the everyday mornings of the neighborhood, a nation sitting between two blocks poet Song Lin evokes in his moving Barrio Chino.
