This paper proposes a work of interpretation, from a textual and contextual analysis, of ten Argentinian films in which the Patagonian territory is re-presented: : La película del rey (C. Sorín, 1986); Gerónima (R. Tosso, 1986); Guerreros y cautivas (E. Cozarinsky, 1989); La nave de los locos (R. Willicher, 1994); Caballos salvajes (M. Piñeyro, 1995); Flores amarillas en la ventana (V. Ruiz, 1996), El viento se llevó lo qué (A. Agresti, 1998); Mundo Grúa (P. Trapero, 1999); Invierno mala vida
more » ... nvierno mala vida (G. Cramer, 1999) e Historias mínimas (C. Sorín, 2002). Intertextual relations, whose meanings struggle to impose themselves, will be identified. A more precise idea of the cultural, social and historical dimension of a set of films will thus emerge. The general hypothesis is that the films show signs of the kind of experiences that the epochal neoliberal mutation molds in the subjects' bodies end subjectivities. Mostly a representation of a "for export" Patagonia appears, with an exotic nature or an enigmatic immensity for contemplation or transitory adventure. This misconception shows at a symbolic level changes that the neoliberalism produced in all Latin America, but which in the south of the south finds specific coordinates and stereotypes.
