Spanish premiere

Two men draping a tattered billboard with a hip new ad. A young girl silently focusing on a candle. Two men sword-fighting. A group of workers discussing the past and present of local industry. Singers and dancers in their practice sessions. Immigrants and forms of immigration. Gestures, tasks, and living conditions in 16mm black-and-white shots. An oblique realism to tell the experiences of working-class African-Americans in the US, from south to north. Work and leisure. Gestures, routines, and special moments. This film is a reflection on the ways of living of African-American communities near lake Erie.
