Argentina, 2013, Colour, 92 min
Ricardo Bär is a young man who lives with his family in a farm, near the border between Argentina and Brazil. Around the farm, there are the rainforest and the settlers, who are descendants of German immigrants. Ricardo doesn’t want to inherit and work his father’s land, but become a preacher. The problems begin when Ricardo and his community ask the directors to stop filming and leave. From then on, Ricardo Bär tells two stories: one is the deal that the directors offer Ricardo to be able to make the film, and the other is the life of Ricardo at that moment, and his reaction to the director’s offer, staged for the film.
