This video was made after the 2012 presidential elections in Mexico. A political moment where media strategies exerted a power, created from a diffusion machine that modeled the perception of people in the country. A machinery composed of connected parts that generated an uncontrollable movement. An electoral fraud that was forged and whose effectiveness depended on the inertia of many Mexican events and realities.
