The city of aftershocks

“La ciudad de las replicas”, the documentary directed by Belina Zavadisca, shows a very particular political and social reality of Famaillá, Tucumán.


If you are looking for a tucumana movie to watch, a very particular one is on the free  CINE.AR website. The film is called   La ciudad de las replicas  and was born in the city of Famaillá. This place is known for two things: the first of them, its empanadas, probably the best in the country; the second, the endless and varied replicas that adorn the city.

The aftershocks are born, it might be said, as a tribute to their strongest leaders, the Orellana twins, politicians who rule the city years ago. One is Juan Enrique and the other José Fernando.

The documentary is directed by Belina Zavadisca. The director combines three elements. The first is to portray the race and the obsession with the aftershocks carried out by the twins Orellana. Famaillá, the National Capital of Empanada, today boasts a Jurassic Park, a Vatican, a Historical Theme Park and a Religious Park. Places that mimic or rebuild true historical sites. They are not the only replicas, there are also superheroes and even one of Messi.

The second element of the film is interviews with twins or twins, who are consulted about the basic questions we can ask ourselves about them. Are they confused people? Do your tasks change? What is it like to have a twin? The third is a casting that is carried out by the director to look for her own replica.

The National Capital of the Twins

The obsession or, perhaps, the idea of exploiting their status as twins and turning it into Famaillá led them to make replicas and much more. Each year they carry out the  National Festival of the Twins , which summons families from all over the country. Their goal is to give a new title to the city: the  National Capital of the Twins .

 The city of replicas  is a unique, interesting and Tucumano  documentary  . It shows one of the thousands of interesting things that can arise in the smallest province of the country, and can be enjoyed free on the CINE.AR platform.
