The story of Suárez, a pioneering group from 90s’ local indie rock scene, during their first years and told from the point of view of the band itself. VHS is the perfect excuse to capture different moments from the band, during shows, rehearsals and warm, intimate moments.
From a screeching lo-fi sound to luminous pop songs; from a split with Juana La Loca to a Le Mans tribute EP; from a cassette tape with a red star in the groundbreaking film Rapado to the lead singer’s main role in Silvia Prieto. From 1989 to 2001, Suárez rode the scene of Argentine indie rock with great freedom and intelligence. Also during all those years, its members recorded on video many of its intimate moments. Blanco wisely sticks to organizing that analogic repertoire without adding anything else, and he lets Suárez’s dazzling mystery reveals itself slowly –like in those shows in which they started hidden behind long paper strips– amidst jokes, dodgy video-camera effects, and lots and lots of answering machines: all symbols of the ‘90s, those years that Suárez made more pleasant and happy with its music.
