Gauchos


video
On the Argentine pampas, the gaucho business has changed; the gauchos are no longer nomadic, solitary and "free". They are now breeders, horse trainers, groomers and caretakers for the management of large estates whose owners live in the city. Cecilio is one of those men, who passed the love of horses to his son Tato.
The Basque beret is glued to his head, as he surveys the many acres of the ranch, drives his pick up truck and prepares the horses.
Anticipation for the gaucho festival: parades through the town, rodeo's, singing and guitar playing around the campfire.
The documentary is in French, but well worth watching even if you don't speak the language.
