SESI FILM LATIN/ Focussed On Latin Film


Pachito Rex / Fabian Hopman / 86 menit/ Color / Mexico

Fransisco Ruiz, calon presiden yang juga seorang penyanyi di Amerika Klatin dibunuh. Polisi berusaha mengungkapkan kasus ini, Selama 5 tahun kasus ini dipetieskan. Lalu bagaimana kisah selanjutnya?

It is the future. Controversial singer, Francisco Ruiz, seems a shoe-in for president. But there are some who would give their lives to stop that from happening.
Pachito Rex, It's Not Over Until It's Over is the sum of numerous stories that revolve around the assassination attempt of Francisco Ruiz, a man who maintains his status as the much beloved candidate, destined to win the presidential election of a small, imaginary Latin-American country. The legends of the suspected assassin, of the policeman assigned to investigate the disappearance of a body, and of an architect contracted to design a mausoleum as an homage become entwined and twisted, offering a vision about idols, democracy, and the repercussions of such ostentatious events on everyday life.
Pachito Rex is part of an investigation project developed by the Centro de Capacitación Cinematográfica, which explores the possible relation between dramaturgy, interactivity, and the application of new technologies. Filled with evocative imagery and inventive digital effects, Fabián Hofman's film is both engaging and absurd
