52nd edition

Porfirio

Fortnight 2011, Feature film, 1h41

Synopsis

Confined to a universe that stretches only from bed to wheelchair, Porfirio – a man in diapers who sells call time on his cell phone in a faraway city on the outskirts of the Amazon – dreams that he can fly.
Porfirio Ramirez, the hero of Alejandro Landes’ film, is an ordinary citizen, whose body and spirit refuse to accept the injustice of which he is a victim. Through this luminous and naturalistic portrait, the director constructs a story about human dignity.
Javier Martin, selection commitee
