|Riding out on la pampas|
Estancia La Margarita has been chosen to be the location of the romantic tragedy called Salomé and the Forester. The short film is to be shown at various film festivals around Argentina and overseas. The true story happened in the 1930s in the Provincia of Buenos Aires when the gaucho Mauro fell in love with the beautiful Salomé deep in the Argentines pampas. I won’t go into details of the deeply tragic romance but suffice to say it has a very sad ending. In the film the story is related by the now English nurse and children’s guardian the elegant and mysterious but now old Miss Alice who lived in Argentina at the time of the love affair. The writer who investigated the story and put it together is Argentina Ruth Capdevila who is a published author. The director is the famous Argentina Jorge Perez and from the 10th of September 2011 the film crew will on location on La Margarita plus other locations in the area to film the tragic story . On one of the film days from the 10th of September on La Margarita they will be filming the birthday festival of Salomé and who knows they may need extras – it was a big party! I can’t promise you they will use you but at least you could be witness to the filming of this gaucho tragedy whilst enjoying some great riding in La Margarita.
