Bandoleros

Documentary for Televisión Española, directed by Hernán Zin (Italian-Argentine director with two nominations in the Goya Awards), which tells the history and stories of more famous Spanish bandits of the 19th Century.

Bandits were some enigmatic characters capable of survive in the wild scenery, as mountains, and who have a destructive life but who create an illusion in the popular imaginary. They were into robbery and assault of travelers who walk in the difficult mountain paths. Their localization and persecution was actually much more difficult for it. Bandits are as pirates in mountains, tough characters focused on crime and who had the popular support many times.
