Abner Benaim, one of Panama’s leading helmers, whose 2014 doc “Invasion,” about the 1989 U.S. invasion of Panama, was the country’s 2016 Academy Award entry, is currently preparing a 13-part TV series “El Presidente,” as well as new fiction feature “Plaza Catedral”, while completing his 90-minute music docu “Ruben Blades Is Not My Name,” which he plans to release at the end of 2017.
All three projects are aimed at the international market: “I don’t believe in making films just for Panama,” says Benaim. “It’s not feasible economically. It’s too small a market. You need to aim at least for Latin America.”
Benaim is particularly interested by the contrast between rich and poor in Latin America, and explores this question from multiple perspectives, including crime drama in “El Presidente,” a thriller-drama in “Plaza,” and music in the “Ruben Blades” documentary.
“El Presidente” is co-penned by Benaim and Papus Von Saenger, »
