Afro-Colombian activist Francia Márquez transforms a derogatory term, "Igualada," into a symbol of rights defiance. Her presidential campaign inspires a nation to dream of a more equitable future, challenging societal norms.  IGUALADA is a David and Goliath story. Thanks to close to 30 hours of footage shot with Francia between 2009 and 2011, the film also shows that Francia’s fight did not begin with the elections.

La activista afro- colombiana Francia Márquez transforma un término despectivo, "Igualada", en un símbolo de desafío a los derechos.

Gracias a cerca de 30 horas de metraje rodadas con Francia entre 2009 y 2011, este documental  muestra que la lucha de Francia no comenzó con las elecciones.
