The documentary directed by Tomás Astudillo, shows President Rafael Correa during the election campaign of 2013.
Astudillo was photography director on an electoral commercial of the representative
“This work (the commercial) remembered to me documentaries of campaigns and that made me want to see one showing of the backstage which we cannot see”, said Astudillo.
Also added that he did it because he felt that life in the Ecuador is divided in a binary world between the pros and cons of the regime.
With the black and white, the filmmaker sought to dont do a film of a single color (green), which would make it partisan, and served on his intention to make a portrait.
In the 52-minute documentary, shown as Rafael Correa is a “political figure who is always a political figure”, which is very difficult to access to see his human side.
Produced by Ostinato film, Executive produced by Marcia Alvarado and the collaboration of EcuadorTV.
