GAUCHOS OF PATAGONIA
Gauchos come from Argentina and Chile. They are simple men living in contact with nature and its animals. Their simple life is based on respect and working together, but their community is slowly beginning to disappear. Their values and their way of looking at life give us plenty of food for thought and, for that reason, they should be preserved forever. So we decided to start by filming a documentary about them.
This documentary was filmed in the Aysen region of Chilean Patagonia while scouting the route and shooting areas for the Patagonman documentary.
The coincidences of life led us to meet Richard Ortega, who opened the doors of his house wide and gave us the chance to find out about his personal view of life.
