Caño Roto, an audiovisual project   

The Satellite Settlement (Poblado Dirigido) of Caño Roto was a social residential development on the southwest outskirts of Madrid whose construction began in 1957 to house the relocated gypsy population, emigrants from the south, and peasants flocking to the city as a result of the rural exodus. In the 1970s, Caño Roto lent its name to the rumba music played by groups such as Los Chorbos, peppered with soul and Afro-American funk influences. This project will involve the making of a film from which to attempt and produce some kind of documentary, fictional and musical knowledge about imposed ways of life, hazardous work, housing uses and the sound that gypsies, southern migrants and marginal inhabitants produce in their city.
