El Hacha is a film about the relationship between men and nature. It is a docu-fiction based on the life and work of Miguel Ángel Fierucci. He is a rancher and he has powerful principles regarding Nature and the native cultures of his homeland. He lives in a region called “El Monte de Caldén”, located at the southwestern part of La Pampa, Argentina. A place with beautiful nature and a lot of predators. Miguel’s true battle is against furtive hunters. He is a very peaceful rancher, but deadly with the shotgun.
What you will find in this document is a synopsis and a concept paragraph. I have total acces to the subject (Miguel). We became friends during the shooting of my previous film, a fiction feauture called “Infierno grande”. Several sequences where shot at his ranch. The project is at an early stage of development (no script and no money yet).
