    • Synopsis
    • "Bicentenary, a horseback journey through Argentina” is a documentary film that chronicles the journey of a group of men who undertake a ride on their own from Jujuy to Buenos Aires as a tribute to Argentine Bicentenary. The goal of the protagonists, symbolic and concrete, is "to unite the Town councils that are still standing and get to Buenos Aires for the  day that met two hundred years of the Revolution that began the formation of Argentina as a nation
      The film begins 64 days before the Bicentennial celebration in Jujuy, where the group concerned, La Patria a Caballo begins the journey. From here it is tells an intimate story of the events and travel adventures, trivial, or revealing, to reach the intended destination. Riders in the jouney itself, meeting people or facing typical conflicts of the journey, they discover the extent of their achievement and attempt a unifying discourse. The images are a singular and unique testimony of the country in the eve of this remarkable date.
