    • Synopsis
    • Settled down for over 100 years in the Isla Maciel, the boatmen that cross back and forward the Riachuelo, provide a service to the people on both sides of the most polluted watercourse in Argentina. But the re-building of a bridge between the island and the Federal Capital will check the job they inherited from their grandfathers and great grandfathers, a “collateral damage” that comes from the hand of progress. Boatmen is an accompaniment to this process, a silent and subtle battle, that may leave them without their historical work.
