  • Alejandro Di Battista
  • María Belén Aguirre
    She crosses the limit of his shyness to be shared and open to the wonderful world that literature means to her. Literature and solidarity as a lifestyle and a starting point to people. To raise the cultural and reflexive level in the community. Mobilized by fundamental idea that everything is culture and it must get everywhere, María Belén proposes that books are not only for read, are also for listen. Showing registered infinite and magical moments that records voices of creators, giving fleeting moments eternity. The perennial is overrated but it makes us reconsider the ephemeral. Everyday’s moments.

She always knew that her life was going to be related with art, because she was raised in the theaters back stages. When she was 10 years old she acquired her first video camera and at that moment her love for the seventh art began. Everyone was grateful, because otherwise she would had kept torturing them with Roque Narvaja, her childhood idol.
