The man who invented himself (El hombre que se inventó a sí mismo) (Serie de TV)

The B side of Argentina’s political history and the secrets of a cursed figure.

How is it possible for a man who comes from nothing to become one of the most influential figures of the moment?  Through the incredible adventures of a cursed journalist -a sort of Citizen Kane of the telepolitical era-, the secret backroom of power during most of the 20th century in Argentina is revealed.

Jorge Fernández Díaz narrates it as a historical novel without fiction, with a cinematographic pulse and scenes as surprising as disturbing through which parade, among many others, Perón, Guido, Massera, Videla, Galtieri, Alfonsín, Menem, Cavallo, Jacobo Timerman, Marcelo Longobardi, Daniel Hadad and José “Pepe” Eliaschev.

Fernández Díaz recounts for the first time how Bernardo Neustadt, at that time an ideologist of neoliberalism and perhaps the most powerful man in Argentina, mounted a campaign to silence this inconvenient and revealing chronicle only to, many years later, ask for his forgiveness in a melancholic scene full of symbolism about the end of an era.
