A North-western Argentinian teacher leads a mobile cinema crew to the most isolated school in the Jujuy high-altitude valleys. Their arrival involves us in the high-altitude educational values, portraying the isolation in the Andean world and how communities engage with the earth. LA PANTALLA ANDINA is a poetic analogy between cinema and travel; a choral history spun by Silvina Velázquez, principal of the school, whose tenacity introduces a new paradigm for the women of the valleys.
