Jorge’s Children

Synopsis:
Shot in Argentina with interviews in Australia, Ecuador, Argentina, and the US. Jorge’s Children is a documentary film that follows the life of the indigenous peoples of Argentina and Ecuador, whose lives were forever altered by the groundbreaking Ethnobiographical work of documentary filmmaker Jorge Prelorán. My film follows the search for these people all over Argentina and in part of Ecuador to interview them. Most of them were children when Prelorán documented them throughout the 1960s, 70s, and 80s. The film aims to discover how their lives changed from the international spotlight that his documentaries put on their communities.
