In the 1970s, Tucuman province in the northwest of Argentina was site to an armed rebellion of the rural working class. The uprising was violently dismantled by the country’s military, and to avoid any similar revolt in the future, the government relocated surviving indigenous peoples to four newly built settlements. It is in these four villages–each named after a different soldier who fell in the military response–that the film Toponimia takes place. Perel’s portrait offers only glimpses of the current inhabitants, their primary presence lying in the audio, while the camera records the fragile infrastructure that remains from the rapid planning forty years before.
In a bid to review the International System of Units (SI), the International Bureau of Weights and Measures gathered at the 26th General Conference on Weights and Measures on November 16, 2018. Sixty member states have voted for changing four out of seven basic units of measurement. The kilogram is among the modified. Before describing the key points, let us have a closer look into the kilogram and its history.
