Cinema "The New Inflation" by Liv Schulman
The New Inflation was born out of Liv Schulman’s research into the multiple meanings of the term inflation. « Inflation, for me, is a particular economic and emotional narrative. This economic phenomenon governs the lifestyle of Argentine citizens. It is intrinsically linked to the country’s relationship with the United States. As an Argentine, I can say that inflation is our national madness, and it is very fierce. It creates a complex system of thought with its own consequences over time and its own narratives of our history and future. » Liv Schulman
