Filmmakers capture crisis for small screen

Dispatch

BUENOS AIRES — The national film institute is urging filmmakers to document Argentina’s slide into economic and social crisis for television broadcast in the coming year.

The Instituto Nacional de Cine y Artes Audiovisuales (Incaa) will choose 13 fictional programs about the nation’s plight and a number of documentaries. Incaa will provide up to 70% of the budget but has not said whether it will set a funding cap.

Fiction proposals are due by Aug. 17 and Incaa will begin accepting docu ideas after that date, a spokeswoman says.

There is plenty of fodder for programs: Since December, Argentina has gone through a number of presidents, with the first two brought down by food riots and demonstrations. Protests continue, especially outside banks where savings have been seized. Behind all this is the suspicion that political corruption and mismanagement have led to the economic collapse.
