about the film
“The Gauchos of Argentina” by Judith Dwan Hallet will be screened at Locavore Film Series: Four Films with a Global Perspective, presented by Women in Film&Video, in partnership with Arlington Drafthouse and Cinema. 
This delightful film profiles the lives of three Gaucho families living in three distinct regions of Argentina:  Patagonia, Salta and Corrientes.  In Patagonia, we meet Jimmy Holliday whose great-grandparents emigrated from Scotland in 1885.  Ever since, the family has carried on the Gaucho tradition in Argentina.  In Salta, a mountainous region in the north of Argentina, we meet Rudecindo Campos.  Rudecindo loves everything about the gaucho way of life but he realizes that this lifestyle is slowly vanishing and that his children probably won’t grow up to be gauchos.  In the far northeast of Argentina, we meet the quintessential gaucho, 80-year old Don Ansola. He and his sons raise their cattle in the marshlands in the province of Corrientes.
