Filmfest 2008

The documentary about the 2006 presidential election in Mexico, was a hit in that country, selling a reported 26,200 tickets on its first day in theaters. The filmmaker had requested via internet that citizens in every district try to capture the happenings of election day on the film. He figured the people might be able to find “something interesting,” but he never expected such an enormous response. The tapes were the foundation for the documentary. He spent more than a year creating the film, a documentary that “doesn’t try to convince anyone, or try to prove anything; it simply shows facts, what was sent to me, what I saw, what the people said; it gives a voice to those who tried to speak."
