Film in progress

The first 60 workers of the Brasilia-Fortaleza road-building outfit are left to their own luck in middle of the Brazilian outback in 1964 after the military coup that toppled Joao Goulart's progressist government. Luckily for them, they were being visited at the time by 13 prostitutes who suffer the same fate. To survive, they - workers and prostitutes alike - organize themselves into a Utopian society with no prostitution, no two-timing, no exploitation. They live in perfect harmony until a mystery-charged sky offloads visitors who are totally foreign to them.
Born in Ponce (Puerto Rico). Having obtained a Ph. D. in Drama and Cinema from New York University, he participated towards the end of the 70s in the Sandinista Revolution, founding the Instituto Nicaragüense de Cine, under the auspices of which he wrote and directed El Danto, first movie shot in Sandinista Nicaragua. Invited by the Salvador liberation movement, he clandestinely filmed El Salvador: el pueblo vencerá, obtaining in 1981 the FIPRESCI prize, among many others. Since 1987, the year of his first feature film (Tesoro), he has written numerous scripts which are now finding their way onto the screens.
