Declaration

film director

“Poder e impotencia, un drama en 3 actos is a Shakespearian drama about power. It is the story of three men who achieve the highest political offices to change the system from the inside. Set in a surreal Paraguay, this political thriller follows the adventures of our heroes from an unusual point of view, behind the scenes, with hope and disappointment, and over a stretch of time that goes from the beginning of the ‘government of change’ to the coup in June 2012. A unique historical period, documented in an intimate and universal film about the meaning and the limits of politics and democracy.”
