Long Synopsis / Sinopsis Larga:

Juan and Ismael are big friends; they work at a builder’s yard in Moreno, Buenos Aires. They pass the winter on the truck and live with work issues, using sense of humor and alcohol to make it through. Friendship it’s a hard wall to break between them. Juan drives the truck and lives surrounded by dogs. Ismael loads the truck with merchandise and dreams about being rich. They deliver bricks, cement and sand at different construction places. Poor and rich people receive their merchandise and sympathy. But one day, they meet a different customer. When you are humiliated, you can get lost in the most twisted mazes of your mind. Sometimes, people can have a breakdown in an unfair society that crunches as a wall and falls to pieces. These are times where respect between humans is blurry. Unconditional friendship is not only a human thing but also a dog thing. Free dogs wander around the Great Buenos Aires streets. Trapped humans rest in their corrals. Corralón (builder’s yard) is not only construction supplier business. Corralón it’s a metaphor of our own society. Corralón is the perimeter that surrounds each human. Is it possible for us to get liberated? Is it possible for us to get re-educated?

 

Juan e Ismael son grandes amigos,  trabajan en un corralón de Moreno, una ciudad en la provincia de  Buenos Aires. Montados al  camión  atraviesan el invierno y conviven con las asperezas del trabajo, lo hacen con humor, a veces ayudados por el alcohol. La amistad es un muro difícil de romper entre ellos. Juan, maneja el camión y  vive rodeado de perros. Ismael, carga el camión y sueña con tener dinero. Reparten cemento, arena y  ladrillos en distintas obras de construcción. Ricos y pobres reciben sus materiales y sus  simpatías. Pero un día se encuentran con un cliente diferente. Cuando una persona es humillada puede perderse en los laberintos más complejos de su mente. En una sociedad injusta, a veces los hombres se quiebran. La sociedad, como una pared, cruje y se quiebra en partes; son  tiempos donde el respeto entre los hombres se desdibuja. La amistad incondicional no es solo cuestión de hombres, también es cuestión de perros. Los perros libres deambulan por las calles de tierra del gran buenos aires. Los hombres atrapados descansan en sus corrales. Corralón, no es solo un negocio de materiales de la construcción. Corralón es una metáfora de nuestra sociedad. Corralón es el perímetro que rodea a cada hombre. ¿Será posible liberarnos, será possible reeducarnos?

- Director’s Statement / Declaraciones del Director:

The movie it’s about human relationships, friendship and discrimination. About the space that each human occupies in this society, a demarcated space, a corral. Corralón represents discrimination between social classes, the human respect loss. In a society where ‘having’ is more important than ‘being’. Limits order us, control us, but when they vanish, liberating movements are generated. The owner reacts when his corral, his private property is invaded. When a spiritual property is invaded or humiliated, a humiliated person reacts. In an era of bricks, wire fences and closed borders, Corralón breaks the coherence limits. Corralón talks about the limits we can break. The movie was filmed in nine days at Moreno, without a definitive script but using a 20 pages’ movie structure that was in constant change, based on actor’s improvisation and space research for reality documentation. It’s a different way of film production in Argentina, a spontaneity pursuit and time portrait.
