The series is produced by the Global Film Initiative to promote cross-cultural understanding by showing little-known, skillfully made independent films to American audiences. The initiative believes that “a powerful, authentic narrative can foster trust and respect between disparate cultures and mitigate the social and psychological impact of cultural prejudice.”

My Time Will Come tells the story of Dr. Arturo Fernandez , a reclusive Quito coroner. Through the film, a series of interwoven tragedies leads the protagonist to reconcile his relationships with both the living and the dead.

Made in 2008, the film is in Spanish with English subtitles (90 mins.).

After working as a director of photography for television and documentary films, winning awards and acclaim from organizations such as UNICEF, Arregui produced his first short film, El Tropezon in 1999. His first full-length film, Offside, was screened at over 30 film festivals. My Time Will Come is his second feature film.
