Political leaders, like everyone else, have a daily life that is not abstract, but rather made up of close relationships with those around them. They may have convictions (hopefully) regarding how to change the world, but it is at the level of personal relationships that they have a life, not just personal, but political (where their ego is most directly projected). There is the public and the private. There is history and the small intrigues involved in the daily exercise of power. In this project, Mala Voadora counterpoints these two sides of political performance, focusing however on the more prosaic aspects of our lives and, to this end, making use of some scenes from Latin American soap operas.
