In the desert plains of western Argentina, there is a village of about 20 concrete buildings that recall the shape of tents. Located within this remote setting charged with symbolism and history, Nación Rangel is an artificial community built on sacked, expropriated territory. Drawing on his background as a historian, Ezequiel Yanco collects the experience of that reality, where young people take on the leading role in their daily lives due to the absence of the adult population, who have either left or take no part in their development.They work out for themselves what has not been passed on to them, such that the hunting of the puma becomes a rite of passage.
The film focuses on these hybrid spaces where modernity and tradition create a new narrative, the place where the transition from adolescence to adulthood is situated. The pampa is powerful in its vastness, its intensity of colors and sounds. Yanco interweaves those different atmospheres into a tale somewhere between fiction and legend, where the voice of its young protagonist Uriel acts as our guide. In the midst of experiencing a transformation himself, Uriel can dream of being a puma. A film that shifts between different languages, in profound, poetic dialogue with history, identity, and maturation. A film to be heard and to listen to. (Eva Sangiorgi)
