BLITTO UNDERGROUND is a dive into Buenos Aries Bohemia guided by a club entertainer named Blitto Falcone. 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 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.
BLITTO UNDERGROUND includes plenty of our hero's music and also the director’s still photographs. Language is English and Spanish, with subtitles as needed.HENRY HORENSTEIN
