    • Synopsis
    • In the mid-20th century, the success of the Super 8 format paved the way to home movies.
      The ordinary man had the possibility to make his own, amateur, movies for the first time. This particularly affected Jorge Mario, a dentist from a small rural town in Argentina, who at the age of 10 attended to the shooting of the pampa-western “Way of a Gaucho” by Jaques Tourneur.
      Today, at the age of 70 and 40 years since the making of his own amateur western “Winchester Martín”, this self taught filmaker wants to shoot his own remake.
