Lucas is a young man who works at a stationery store and writes for a film magazine. One day, he’s asked to translate a text by the American critic Manny Farber. Meanwhile, he meets Mariana, a woman looking for a job who needs to Xerox her ID card. Lucas also sells a marker to Nicolás, a cartoonist who ends a comic strip, and reunites with Agustín, a former schoolmate who work as a waiter in a bar and produces independent films. “Let us now praise movies” is a homage to the small tasks that, like termites, are the foundation of the great works of art.
