Faustino Barrientos 40 Years of Complete Isolation Documentary stream


Faustino Barrientos has lived alone on the shores lake O’Higgins’ in a house built from the remains of a shipwrecked fishing vessel, since 1965.
He’s a pastoralist, living mostly off the land and his livestock, with few modern amenities.

His nearest neighbors are in Villa O’Higgins, a small community of several hundred people, 25 miles away, accessible only by a two-day horseback ride through rugged mountain animal paths. Every few years, Faustino makes this ride to sell his cattle in town.

Currently 81 years old, Faustino is reaching the end of his life, and his self-imposed isolation is being encroached upon by the forces of government, economy, and tourism.

VICE went to document his lifestyle and speak with him about the changing face of Patagonia and the gaucho lifestyle.
