about the documentary

When Louis Ortiz shaved off his goatee one day in 2008, his life changed forever. He looked in the mirror and he didn’t see himself – a middle-aged, unemployed Puerto Rican man from the Bronx. He saw the face of change, of hope… of money. The Audacity of Louis Ortiz is a feature-length documentary that tells the strange and improbable tale of a Barack Obama impersonator who cashes in on the “look of a lifetime” and chases a fevered American dream from opportunity to oblivion.
