LA SALADA Trailer | Festival 2014

For three days each week, from the afternoon to the early hours of the morning, thousands of people flock to the outskirts of Buenos Aires to buy discounted wares at “La Salada,” South America’s largest informal market. Begun by Bolivian immigrants in 1991, and fuelled by Argentina’s financial crisis, the market has become an entire economy unto itself. In his poignant debut, La Salada, director Juan Martin Hsu presents this unique and vibrant locale from the vantage points of new immigrants to Argentina.
