Blitto Underground (2021) is a dive into Buenos Aires Bohemia, guided by a struggling club entertainer named Pablo Blitto Torre. It’s about inclusivity, acceptance, and community—the community Blitto has built of his friends, fellow entertainers, and fellow "freaks," as he calls them.

Blitto’s world of music, individualism, love, and self-expression on the margins is a fluid world and Blitto Underground embraces this fluidity in a verité style as it follows its characters wherever they go. One unexpected place Blitto goes is domesticity and humanity, as we follow the vegan Blitto to animal rescue work, dog love, and the warmth of his given family.


The screening will be followed by a brief talk and Q&A with the filmmaker, Henry Horenstein.

Henry's photographic stills, including some from the Blitto Underground series, are on exhibit in the Gallery at 3S through March 20 under the title Where Everybody is Somebody.
