You Are Strong


The Ranqueles, an indigenous population originally located in the heart of the long Argentine territory, today have the challenge of continuing to integrate into the society inherited from the colony.

After being displaced by the Argentine nation several decades ago and in the midst of daily problems, this documentary follows a group of Ranqueles who try to rediscover, protect and practice their original traditions in order to pass them on to the following generations who will continue to leave the imprint of their existence in these infinite golden lands.

Water Is Life



In this educational and entertaining short documentary we move to North America, in the fertile lands of Louisiana, United States, where a group of indigenous women struggle to defend the water of their native lands against the threat of the extractive industry.

The risks to fulfill this mission are many, including losing their own lives, but it is a will that has been inherited from years of resistance, since the very moment their ancestors settled in this place to fight the settlers. They will not rest until they prevent their water from being contaminated.
