Los Afincaos (Sons of the Earth) was the first film project from the legendary Teatro del Pueblo of Argentina. Set in the Northern hills, the story concerns a pair of Indian brothers, leaders of their local tribe. The ...展开older of the brothers falls in love with a young schoolteacher, but rather than go through the courtship proceedings, he kidnaps and rapes the poor girl. When she dies from grief, the younger brother avenges her death by killing his sibling. The acting and staging of Los Afincaos is stagey in the extreme, suggesting that Teatro del Pueblo had a lot to learn about film technique.
