  • "At age 84, Alfredo Li Gotti is one of the main film collectors in Argentina. His passion has been intimately connected with friendship ever since he was a boy screening short films for the kids of La Boca with his very first projector, a gift from his uncle. With some sacrifice but also an unshakeable enthusiasm, he was able to fulfill a dream that came from his will to share his priceless collection (almost a thousand films; and more than five thousand movies in other formats): the dream of having a cinema in his own home. He’s been screening films for free in that incredible place for more than two decades. Featuring interviews with other cinephiles, film critics, and Li Gotti’s relatives, Gómez takes us to discover the fascinating world of film collection and to get deeply acquainted with Alfredo’s life: a life that –of course– seems to have been taken out of a movie, but is also one that transcends the screen and gets a universal and entirely human quality." Quoting the description from the 2010 Mar del Plata Film Festival site.
