With intimate and often dangerously close access, Raul, the Terrible is a warts-and-all portrait of a man driven to change the world and a frightening insight into the politics of poverty.
Raul Castells was born in the city of Che Guevara whom he admires. Raul is a walking, talking force of nature. He fights the Government. He fights big business. He invades buildings and occupies casinos. And he has a good reason. The average Argentinian does not have a job, a roof over their head or any means to provide for their family. There are currently 20 million people below the poverty line.
