In 1958, Argentine film-maker Lucas Demare releases this film, that installs in the social imaginary a subject that came to be explored by Bernardo Verbitzky, in its novel "Villa Miseria también es América" ("Misery Village also is America"), published in 1957. Literature and the cinema thus go ahead, in almost fifteen years, to the interest devoted by social sciences just from the beginning of the '70s to the spontaneous settlements of urban working class. This interest was pioneered by the work of anthropologist Hugo Ratier,"Villas and villeros", published at Buenos Aires in 1971 by the Centro Editor de América Latina.
