As the name suggests, it would be about the life of José de San Martín, with special focus on the Crossing of the Andes. Production will be done by Channel 7 and Channel Encuentro, and the main actor will be Rodrigo de la Serna.


The production of the movie was announced at Casa Rosadamarker, with the presence of President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, the governor of the province of San Juan, José Luis Gioja, Minister of Education Juan Carlos Tedesco, the director of the National System of Public Media, Tristan Bauer, and actor Rodrigo de la Serna. The president said that "this is a very special moment for everyone because addressing from public television the Crossing the Andes is more than just remember a milestone in the struggle for emancipation." She explained that the movie would focus on the personal traits of San Martin, and pointed that if San Martín "had listened to the voices who say that nothing can be done, that everything is impossible, he would still be in Mendoza and we would be subjects of the King of Spain.".
