Ata tu arado a una estrella ( Tie your plough to a star) Argentina, 2018. 82 mins. Subtitles in English.  Directed by Carmen Guarini.

In 1997, film maker Fernando Birri returned to Argentina to create a film questioning the validity of utopias.  Director Carmen Guarini decided to record these moments. A first edited version of this documentary was hidden for 18 years in a fragile VHS tape. Today it comes to light, as a new film that examines the voice of this poet, who has been so influential to Latin American cinema, and who until his death at the age of 92, continued to reach his own utopias.
