Buenos Aires - tango, ear-splitting traffic noise and a treasure trove for litter. "Buenos Aires Recyclers" portraits the cultural, social and urban fabrics of this city by means of experimental animation. The viewer is guided to urban hideouts where little creatures dwell. These are digitally composed with collected trash and typical local products. The clatter of the limbs of these creatures interacts with the soundscapes of Buenos Aires.
