As unrest continues to boil over across Colombia, one determined woman has the courage to challenge an entrenched political establishment in the country’s biggest stage. Against all odds, Francia Márquez, a black, rural community activist has launched a presidential campaign hoping her uncompromising appeal for justice can inspire a country to dream again.
Our work sample for Igualada is based on some recent footage that we filmed with Francia over the past few months, archival we have from previous shoots, as well as found archival. It is meant to give an idea of who Francia is, her activism and trajectory, and her ascension in popularity throughout the country. We hope it illustrates what an amazing story Francia’s campaign can be as well as the wealth of archival we have to help tell her story.
