Papapapa

Papapapa is an experimental documentary about immigration. Looking at the potato, which was first cultivated in Peru as an Inca food staple, Papapapa paints a picture of a vegetable which has traveled, and been transformed. The video follows this immigrating vegetable North as it eventually becomes the potato chip, the couch potato, and the "French Fry." While following the potato's journey and transformation, Papapapa simultaneously follows another Peruvian in motion, Augusto Rivera, the maker's father. The stories of these two disparate immigrants, the potato, and the maker's father, converge as Augusto Rivera becomes a Peruvian couch potato, sitting on the American sofa, eating potato chips and watching Spanish Language television.
