The Dignity of the Nobodies
Filmfest 2006

THE DIGNITY OF THE NOBODIES has been designed as the second in a four film series after Solanas’ 2004 A SOCIAL GENOCIDE, which analyzed the policies of power and the role globalization and neo-liberalism played in Argentina’s economic disaster. Solanas, noted for his social documentaries, is clearly outraged by the injustice brought about by his country’s economic collapse, but he chooses to concentrate not on how the poor are victimized, but how some of them have managed to win small but telling victories. An upbeat tone guides a wealth of intercut stories over a two-hour running time, ending in a rousing final call to action and resistance. Deborah Young, Variety, Sep. 27, 2005
