About the film

A secret in the box explores the life and works of Marcelo Chiriboga (1933-1990), Ecuadorian writer internationally known as member of the “Latin American Boom” generation, but who remains unknown in his country until this day. Through multiple voices and varied archival footage, the film reconstructs the puzzle of Chiriboga´s existence, a mix of reality and fiction.
