He didn’t own a suit before all this happened. He didn’t have a job. He didn’t have much hope. Then one day he looked in the mirror and saw the most powerful man in the world. The Audacity of Louis Ortiz is a feature length documentary and transmedia project that follows the improbable, parallel journey of Louis Ortiz across the Obama years. The film is currently in post-production.
