Our short film ‘Horses and Solitude: Inside the Life of a Brazilian Gaúcho‘ is featured by National Geographic short film.

The gauchos of South American’s pampas are the stuff of legend. Now considered national symbols in Argentina and Uruguay, these solitary horsemen and women have herded cattle through the lowland plains for centuries. In Brazil’s southern state of Rio Grande do Sul, gaúchos (the Portuguese equivalent) have become so integral to the culture that the term is used to describe anyone living in the region. Get a glimpse of what life is like for a modern day gaúcho in this breathtakingly beautiful short.
