Hidden Wonders of Argentina

For many years I had this idea in my head, from so much time and kilometers traveled knowing places for almost the past fifteen years. I was putting together a list of those places where I had felt incredible & unique energy, I wrote the script and last year I had the chance to do it. It is a dream come true and I hope it is inspiring, that it motivates us to discover the rhythm, the tradition and the beauty of the landscapes of our country. The places are presented by the people who live and feel their land as their ancestors did. Those people who continue to live with the same truths of their land. The documentary invites you to experiment with all your senses in naturally impressive places, hidden treasures and far from the traditional tourist sites. We invite you to visit the 8 hidden wonders of Argentina.

Director Biography - Gabriel Ignacio Franco

I studied Marketing at Uces and from there I worked in a multinational. So far everything is normal. At about 26, I quit! for feeling in one that was not mine. So I went on a long trip to Australia and New Zealand. And when I came back, I decided together with my brother that I wanted to make an online travel guide for Argentina. This is how Tripin Argentina was born, of which I am a co-founder. Imagine 14 years ago, where social networks did not exist and no matter how much you laugh, everything was told in blog and photolog format. If you read correctly, photolog haha. Question that the thing was evolving and I was living very closely all that transformation in communication and digital era. So much so that I ended up discovering my passion for audiovisuals. I love traveling and filming so much that in the last three years I have taken more than 300 flights around Argentina. I love to communicate and tell stories that convey a feeling. Forming myself and discovering in this way my great passion for digital tourist communication. I really enjoy working with experiences and wanting to live them. Always working on production since my training and generating a very clear marketing vision. With the aim of communicating in a different way and always focused on building a brand through empathy and commitment. Tripin Argentina is today one of the largest tourism digital communities in Argentina with almost 20 million impressions each month.

In 2018 I made a video counting my year, it went viral explosively and it was even on TV. I cried a month of emotion.

In march 2020 I released my first docu, which today has more than 1M views on YouTube and was even on TV. Oh and I cried back.

In september 2021 I released my second docu, of which I am immensely proud. Oh, and it premiered in the cinema with a super avant premiere.
