The Forbidden Voyage
Feature documentary developed in coproduction with IMAGINADA FILMS (Argentina)
Director: David Rubio
“If you return home, you´re a dead man,” someone told him. Aristides escaped from Argentina to Ecuador, where he became the “playwright of exile.” 50 years later, he makes the opposite voyage. His dramatic texts metaphorize the landscape, as we try to understand how Latin America has changed since the 70s.
PRODUCTION: Ecuador, Argentina, Peru, Bolivia, Chile
Born in Quito in 1979, Rubio is based in BA since 2007, where he founded IMAGINADAfilms.
