1835 in the epic chaos of Argentina, Senor launches his ambitious project in the southern desert: creating a political movement. His methods for gaining followers, though, will eventually make a tyrant of him.
This apocalyptic black-and-white film is set in 1835 Argentina, a land in chaos after the fall of its leader. In the lawless expanse of the desert, several armed groups are engaged in bloody turf battles and rivalries. The ambitious Señor and his two aides relocate his base to the Southern Pampas to experiment with creating a new political community. They force, intimidate, and even kill farmers and villagers to follow them. Señor becomes a terrifying dictator, justifying his actions as a necessary evil for national unity and political purification. Benjamín NAISHTAT, who garnered international attention with his debut feature History of Fear, returns with another cinematic experiment. (KIM Young-Jin)
