 - 2021

The steppe of Patagonia is swept by a grey wind... 13-year-old Mora wants to be a ‘gaucho’. She rebels against school and affirms herself to her parents, Swiss Italian ecologists, whose dream of autonomy turns into a nightmare. Mora will go deep into the meanders of the steppe to help her only friend Nazareno, an old Mapuche who has lost his horse, Zahorí.

Marí Alessandrini

Marí Alessandrini grew up in Patagonia. At a very young age she started working in photography, scenic arts and contemporary circus, travelling in South & North America. At the age of 26, she left Argentina to study cinema in Europe. Marí graduated in Film Direction and Visual Arts at the University of Geneva (HEAD).
