Presentation

Synopsis

Túpac, son of a Colla mother and a Japanese father, lived with his family in northern Argentina until one night someone broke into his house and violently took his family away. Tupac is 5 years old and is saved by hiding under his bed. He always believed that a legendary demon dog that devours people was responsible for the tragedy but, over the years, he discovers with the help of his friend Ñusta that it was not a fantastic beast who took his family, but men who continue to kill and kidnap other people. Therefore, Túpac becomes DOGMAN, to get revenge.

Director’s vision

I wonder why there are so few Latin American superheroes. We created a duo of friends seeking justice, using my own family history as inspiration: my Japanese grandfather who married my Argentinian grandmother. Túpac and Ñusta will convert their weaknesses into the great strength that will allow them to seek justice.
