SILVER FIREFLY

Adrian makes tools out of garbage and uses them to catch fish, which he stands on the street for hours to sell. For the past 15 years, Adrian has been living in makeshift accommodation on the banks of the Río de la Plata near the port of Buenos Aires. He and many others who live here in poverty have been marginalized by the Argentine government because they don’t fit its political mold. In this documentary, they explain why they nevertheless remain hopeful about the future and the election coming up in their country in 2019.
