Arrieros presents the culture and everyday life of Argentinean arrieros, mule herders that transport equipment and provisions during the climbing season at Aconcagua, the highest mountain in the Americas. At the same time that it explores the region’s unique geography, the documentary also observes the gradual disappearance of a culture and of a traditional form of work and testifies a microcosm of globalization, revealing the contrast of cultures present in the base camp of Mount Aconcagua.
