Who knows the history of the Shelter Warnes, and its relationship with the Carrillo neighborhood? What is decent housing? How to portray facts that are disappearing? This documentary project is a collective construction, with training to the young ones of the Carrillo suburb with the intention to reveal different points of view about these experiences.
Carrillo was opened in 1990, built especially for the 700 families who were evicted from the Shelter Warnes. The urban design, it had consider everything, even the novelty of the bidet and shower for those who had never had one. This architectural project also included the educational, hospital and commercial infrastructure.
The eviction of the shelter was made in just two days with more than 200 trucks full of the life and illusions of the families of Warnes.
However, shortly after arriving in their new homes, - the ones from Warnes - as they were called, were able to see the reality that would have to face: protests and clashes with neighbors, educational and commercial infrastructure unfinished, deficit medical attention related to respiratory, skin and intestinal diseases
Today, Los Relocalizados propose portray the current situation of the Carrillo Neighborhood. Directed by Dario Arcella (who also co-directed the film Warnes Aparte made in 1990 at the collapse shelter) we have given workshops for film training to the youth in the neighborhood to encourage the self-reporting of their daily lives.
Based on the workshops in the neighborhood, the topics to work with came up, that testify the hardship of this overcrowded neighborhood:
- Risk for all inhabitants because of the structural state of emergency (sewers, electricity, mains, gas mains, emergency building industry, asphalt, etc.)
- The precarious jobs, unemployment, clandestine work at various degrees.
- The lack of equal opportunities conditioned by the fact of living in the neighborhood Carrillo.
- Multiethnic and multicultural identity.
- Violence and drugs, as a result of the institutional disengagement that facilitates insecure business in the neighborhood.
- The identity and culture neighborhood crossed by the mythical Shelter Warnes.
The designed and idealized neighborhood Ramon Carrillo becomes a suburb in distress, as was the Shelter Warnes.
