Rising Stars, Falling Stars - We Must Have Music!

To round off the year, Vaginal Davis is presenting TOCA PARA MI (Argentina 2001) by Rodrigo Fürth on December 16. Carlos is the drummer in a punk rock band in Buenos Aires. When his adoptive father Genaro, an accordion player, dies, he travels to the small village of Los Angeles, which is in the middle of nowhere. The further he leaves punk music behind him, the more open he becomes to the rhythms of folklore, such as the Cumbia or Cuartelazo. It is more than ten years ago that a train last passed through Los Angeles. For this reason, many of the village inhabitants have either done a runner or are prostituting themselves, like the young Fabiana... Followed by drinks, music and gossip with Vaginal Davis.
