Description

PENÍNSULA MITRE, A Forgotten Land

(2017) | 88 mins | Spanish with English subtitles

Trailer: https://vimeo.com/ondemand/peninsulamitre

The Gauchos del Mar brothers - two Argentinean brothers who were born in a family with tradition and passion for surfing, perform an unprecedented 400 KM expedition by foot with 35kgs+ on their backs during 53 days on the easternmost tip of Tierra del Fuego Province, a pristine area where no one lives. The brothers have the goal of surfing a world-class wave never ridden before at the Cape San Diego Lighthouse, the most easterly point. To get there they overcome heavy terrains, scarcity of food and harsh climate. With no communication whatsoever they document the region and decide to share their message of environmentalism, avoiding consumerism and living simply in order to protect Península Mitre forever.
