Outsider runs for Chile presidency

Filmmaker with little political experience challenges established candidates.



    The presidential election in Chile was supposed to be a race between two candidates.

    But that was before Marco Enriquez Ominami, a 36-year-old filmmaker with only a few years of political experience, erupted onto the scene.

    In an outspoken campaign, he has been calling for major social and political changes.
