El Cordillerano wanted to talk about the achievement with the producer. “For the film and for us, the filmmakers, it is very important to be on Amazon Prime Video, which is a very important international platform for video on demand. He confirmed their interest in this film and it seemed to them that it could be part of their catalog in the United States and throughout Latin America. A very important distribution step.”
Among the four protagonists of the film, three are residents of this city: Juan Alari, Facundo Saez Sanudo and Emmanuel Gallardo. Barilochenses are also the supporting actors and actresses, at least the vast majority. Likewise, the sites and landscapes in which the plot of land runs from here. At the end of last year, it was launched in the country via CINE.AR TV and CINE.AR. “It had a very good effect, with a very large audience,” Coronel said.

Reaching a global audience is complicated because theater premieres are more expensive and more complex and it’s another very limited circuit.” …for Argentine films and even more so for Patagonian films.”

Coronel summed up the opportunity to double the screens that the pandemic context has given us and to strengthen These platforms greatly favored the film.
Also, “On a quality level, it looks great. It’s not a movie theater, but it looks very good because the quality of the platform playback is very good, so we’re very happy with that too: it can be enjoyed in the highest quality possible. You can see all the work behind the movie. Per From Nacho Aguirre, the director, and to all the people who took part, it’s a great happiness. It also encourages thinking about new projects because the precedent is so important to all of us who did is full of noise and pain.” The floor rises higher and higher.
