Cossacks in Argentina
Friday, January 11, 2008
In 1961, an American film crew arrived in Salta, Argentina, to make "Taras Bulba", an old-style Hollywood epic: it's set in 16th century Ukraine and features massive battle scenes on horseback. For some Salteños, the film seemed realer than real life. Federico Windhausen was intrigued by the strange folklore that’s bubbled up around it.
