IGUALADA: Una “igualada”, a derogatory term (based on class, race, and gender) used to designate someone who acts as if they deserve rights and privileges that supposedly don’t correspond to them
In one of Latin America’s most unequal countries, Francia Márquez — a Black Colombian rural activist — challenges the status quo with a presidential campaign that inspires a nation to dream.
Igualada has been made possible with the support of: Sundance Institute, Luminate, Perspective Fund, and Open Society Foundation.
Intermixing our recent footage, and archival, this sample is a window into who Francia is, her activism and trajectory, and her ascension in popularity throughout Colombia, and internationally. We hope it illustrates the incredibility of Francia’s story and campaign.
