En Radio Ambulante Studios nos obsesionan las grandes historias: desde relatos íntimos y conmovedores, hasta hechos políticos que atraviesan un país, una región, un continente. Pero hay acontecimientos e historias que no pueden contarse en un solo episodio. Por eso, llega CENTRAL, el canal de series de Radio Ambulante Studios. Combinamos la experiencia y el potencial narrativo de Radio Ambulante, y el filo periodístico y analítico de El hilo, para reconstruir, en esta primera serie, una historia que tiene que ver con todos, la del presidente de El Salvador, Nayib Bukele. Un joven que irrumpió en un país pequeño y, en poco tiempo, cambió todas las reglas de juego. En toda América Latina, Bukele ha sembrado la interrogante sobre ¿cuál es el punto en que las promesas de la democracia ya no importan? ‘Bukele: el señor de Los sueños’ es una serie documental de seis episodios sobre cómo un publicista se convierte en político y convence a una sociedad de entregarle un poder sin límites.
