Los Gauchos Judios
It is not widely known that Argentina, which is thought to have harbored many ex-Nazis (such as Josef Mengele), is also the home of a large and well-established population of Jews who fled the pogroms of Russia near the turn of the century and settled in the Argentine countryside. This film tells the story of those early settlers, many of them new to farm work and all of them new to the horse-riding traditions of the region's cowboys ("gauchos"). Based on the book by Alberto Gerchunoff who was one of these immigrants. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
