The film we didn't choose

By the hand of Norma Aleandro, the Argentine Society for the Management of Actors Performers (SAGAI) released a video with a message of hope.


When no one expected it,  a pandemic pushed us to lock us up . From our shelters, we see how the world was paused. While some, the indispensable ones, continue to be active, others have to stand still, kept.  Artists  are one of the most hit by the health crisis we are going through. Despite that, they wanted to be present and  send an encouraging message to all Argentines . The spokesman was nothing more and nothing less than the great  Norma Aleandro .

The  Argentine Society for the Management of Performing Actors (SAGAI)  released a video to put its bit in raising awareness about measures to prevent COVID-19 and the importance of social isolation. With fragments and quotes  from different Argentinean films , mixed with images of the City of Buenos Aires empty by quarantine, Aleandro's voice-over invites us to make that effort that is costing us so much.

This is not the film we chose

 This is not the film we chose , but we're all protagonists. There is an action we need to listen to. A be attentive to the partner, a foot you have to wait to go on stage. No, no, this is not the film we chose. Because our thing is to meet us, the meals with the nona, the hugs with the old, the passionate advice, the gossip, the mate. The looks of love, also of the others. Lantern dances, corner feast, things said in front...

This is not the film we chose, but we're looking for a way to stay in touch. Sharing the autumn sun, which crosses all the windows. And that moonlight, to give the applause that is not in the rooms for them and for them. No, no, this is not the film we chose, but it's going to dawn another time when all the sets light up again. When we live great stories and also minimal stories...

 And that moment will come, right at that moment, when we are all going to stage together and with more dreams and with more work, as in the happiest days.
