Best of Fest

(Argentine, Uruguay / 2018 / 74’)

Political activist, proud warrior of his past and, most of all, a dreamer, "El Pepe" has become the President of Uruguay while always staying true to his ideals. But also embracing the possibility of change  and innovation. The master of cinema Emir Kusturica digs into the heritage of José "Pepe" Mujica and finds in him a kindred spirit , someone to talk to about the meaning of life from a philosophical, political and poetic point of view. Presented at the Venice International Film Festival, the loving portrait of a man who throughout his life has never stopped fighting to assert his ideals and fulfill his seemingly utopian desires.
