Film Series: Porfirio

2011. Colombia. Dir: Alejandro Landes. With Porfirio Ramirez. 101 min.

Victim of a stray police bullet and an unsympathetic legal system, the eponymous paraplegic spends his time scraping for survival while secretly plotting his revenge. Landes creates a remarkable doc-fiction hybrid that joins the intimate details of Porfirio’s day-to-day life with a re-creation of his astonishing attempt to hijack an airplane.
