In Colombia, a nation marred by profound racial and socio-economic disparities, a Black woman from a rural background challenges the status quo by launching a presidential campaign. Reappropriating the term “igualada,” Francia Márquez, catapults a movement to the upper echelons of power, by refusing to “know her place.” Fifteen years in the making, this documentary peels back the curtain on how unprecedented change can happen.

—José Solis, The Film Stage

“If you’re into docs about strong social justice causes, then this is the one for you.”

“Igualada es un documental inspirador e íntimo que renueva la fe en el ejercicio democrático.”
