2017 I Documentary - TV I 56min | HD | Color


Every year, athletes break new marks, so we need to wonder, are they better than their predecessors? Are the sprinters faster or do they have better shoes and tracks? Are the swimmers stronger or are the swimsuits better designed and the swimming pools better built? Are the kayak athletes superiors or do they reach higher speeds because of the materials used in the kayaks? Equalizer confronts the best athletes of our times, with the equipment their predecessors used, to see how technology helps them achieve their full capacity.

At Inicia Films we understand that production is a way to influence society and connect emotionally with the audience. Since 2006 we have been working to promote new generations of filmmakers and thus give them a voice in today’s audiovisual world.

Through the eyes of our creators, the sensitivity of our authors, we accompany the development of international projects and multicultural talent, building bridges between their experiences abroad and their roots. We deal with topics that respond to current concerns and we believe that by connecting people and emotions we can help draw new narrative and visual horizons.
