    • Synopsis
    • In a corner of Argentinian Patagonia, in Latin America, there is a social, productive and sustainable organization system of ancestral origins.
      The transhumance is related to moving and herding animals cyclically to the high mountain in the summer pastures and down to the slopes of the mountain range in the wintering grounds by the herding traces.
      Nowadays the migratory stockbreeders, Mapuche indigenous and criollos, are facing the advance of the fences, the closing of their pastures and
      expulsion from their lands.
      The proliferation of private property and the discovery of hydrocarbons in the area are risking their livelihoods.
      Although gradually the future prospects of this lifestyle become darker, the organization and implementation of joint dynamics suggest a
      solution to a conflict that runs through every corner of the modern world.
