The old rubber tree is still there before the May Revolution and also before this territory was named as Argentina. The tree is from 1790, perhaps earlier, in a square located in Recoleta, in the heart of Buenos Aires. It's a silent witness of history and a biological and cosmic entity that persists in time. A species that unfolds and expands, and that also challenges the cinema. What is the exact take to shoot that tree? (Roger Koza)
