ARREO unveils the refreshing, thought-provoking story of Eliseo Parada and his wife, transhumant goat herders of western Argentina, who must face both the challenge of seeing their pastoralist livelihood threatened by “progress,” and the uncertainty of not knowing for how much longer their own sons will keep the generations-old family tradition. Right from the start, ARREO grabs viewers by the senses and drops them in the middle of the Andes for a ride along Eliseo, his five hundred goats, the four herding dogs, the mule, and a ubiquitous dust cloud. Besides the initial visual impact, the rhythmic, almost hypnotic sounds coming from man and animal alike quickly lead to a sweet surrender.  Dust will likely make its way into the palate uninvited. The lively lot functions as a unified whole: solid teamwork prevails in the journey to and from the grazing lands, all against a breathtaking canvas of dunes, wind, mountains, valleys, river, stars, fire, rain. No element of nature is absent from this beauty feast. (In Spanish with English subtitles).
