A Man When He Is a Man

El hombre cuando es hombre

Directed by Valeria Sarmiento
Costa Rica, Chile, 1982


Set in Costa Rica and touched with dark humor, this stylistically imaginative documentary illuminates the social climate and cultural traditions which nurture machismo and allow the domination of women to flourish in Latin America.
