    IGUALADA
    A film by Juan Mejía Botero

    Colombia/Mexico/USA, 2024
    Afro-Latin@/Documentary/Politics, 81 min
    Spanish with English subtitles

    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.
