The authorities in Argentina and Paraguay refused to cooperate on the newest feature film of Kathryn Bigelow, who wants to shoot in the triple border Argentina-Brazil-Paraguay, considered by the U.S. government to be the center of financing Islamic terrorist groups.
The Argentinean Minister of Tourism, Enrique Meyer, expressed “deep indignation” at ad for filming the “Triple Border”.
“We discussed this matter with the Minister (Tourism, No) in Paraguay and Argentina. We agreed that such a gesture would put the region in a bad light and we are outraged by this, “he said.
The Paraguay Tourism Minister, Liz Cramer, condemned also the filmmakers intention.
“I spoke with the Minister of Tourism in Argentina and Brazilian authorities. We all are offended” she said. “It would be foolish to work for two pennies, with some people who will present us as the most terrifying creatures on the planet,” she added.
