Building on a collection of photos found discarded in the streets of Buenos Aires, Derby & Groma pieces together a narrative surrounding a mysterious performing duo from a bygone era. The film paints a vibrant picture of Argentina during the 1920s and ‘30s and attests to the value of cultural artifacts to help recover a forgotten past while enlivening our imaginations.
