Juguetes, María Luisa Bemberg, Argentina, 1978, 12'
This short film, shot at the Rural Exposition, is a testimony that, based on seventy interviews with 9 and 10 year-old girls and boys, explores the behavioral patterns imposed by conventional education and the results obtained. Boys are educated in a specific way, with very different vital objectives, and toys reflect this discrimination: kitchenettes, dolls, hairdryers, cosmetic kits, the whole domestic world for girls. Creative games, those that awaken the imagination (trains, cars, games to build, men in space), are intended for boys.
