Summary Years after the Cuban revolution, as Fidel Castro was flying over the swampy region of Zapata, he landed his helicopter in order to talk to the crocodile hunters, the cocodrileros. He asked them to help them save the rombifer, a Cuban crocodile, symbol of the country, and a vanishing species. At that time, Eusebio and Ruben were young hunters. Today, these Hemingwaylike personalities devote their lives to the capture and protection of the same animal they hunted for years. During their frequent missions, cut off from civilization and armed only with machetes and lassos, they inventory, study and look after their crocodiles. To capture the rombifers, they use the lasso technique, which requires skill and strength : a bait is used to lead the crocodile's head into the slipknotted lasso, attached to a stick long enough to anticipate any attack by the animal. But crocodiles do not surrender easily. Director: Jean Queyrat & Vincent Gremillon (Cuba).
