Not a Single One is a feature-length documentary film about the present economic, social and political crisis in Argentina from a native's perspective. Bringing on board the views of ordinary citizens and expert analysts, the documentary examines the factors behind the December 2001 collapse and depicts the immediate and long-term impact on Argentine society. The film was made by a team of 10+ in Buenos Aires, and includes interviews with renowned Argentine analysts such as sociologist Mora y Araujo and journalist Jorge Lanata.

Marta Bermudez's research deals with the broader areas of memory, subjectivity, identity. Through her analysis, she tries to assess how the crisis has impacted civil society and how through an abundance of production and consumption of cultural expression and representation there is a search for healing and reaffirmation of identity and subjectivity.
