Script The Challenge

Cubierta-The-Chalenge-script-bw-kdpThe Challenge is my adaptation of my father’s bestselling/blockbusting My Uncle Jacinto. In my adaptation bullfighting becomes boxing, Madrid/La Quinta becomes Cape Town/Mandela Park, and the 1940s becomes 2010s. The script has been to IFFR/International Film Festival Rotterdam where I applied for production grants to produce the film in Cape Town with Tim Spring (Raw Target, Reason to Die, etc.) as director. They called it “a near miss” and "too Hollywood". The script is only available in English and Spanish.
