SYNOPSIS

Mariel, 11, whose nickname is «Cara Sucia», leads a simple and happy life in a small village of Misiones in the middle of the Argentinean jungle. One day, a multinational company buys the small forestry and everything changes. Melany, a slender and beautiful woman, runs the company with the goal of reducing the whole forest area in less than a month with heavy machinery, no matter what. Nature senses danger. In a clearing of the Jungle, «Augusto», a wise old man and «Vivaldi» a monkey (Cartoon) are ready to help. Both are nature allies and have magical powers granted by the forest. With these powers they will make the children stand up for Nature.

Directors Note

Two main axes cross the fundamental meaning of our story. On one hand the need to protect nature in face of its permanent destruction, forcing adults to change and become aware of this ongoing catastrophe. On the other hand the urgent need to rescue the real value of money and possessions. Today money marks the horizons in much of the world. To have, posses, exchange things or affection for money, always in

the same liberal and consumerist way is established as conceptual basis of human relationships, where children are involved. We see it in movies, video games, Internet, overwhelmed by advertising, TV shows, etc.

 

There are, however, many people concerned and occupied with this issue, among whom we are, and with

«Cara Sucia » we make our bet on reflecting and collaborating even in a small dimension, for a change.
