Word of the month: "Chicharrón"
Before the 56th Cartagena International Film Festival (Ficci) I´ve never heard the word "Chicharrón" in a context other than gastronomical. It this scenario a «Chicharrón» is not a pork crackling or a fried pork, It´s a difficult situation or an embarrassing confusion. Must be used in a "unsolvable" tone of voice: "Ese Chicharrón no es mío" (that ain't my problem);
"Se me acaba de presentar un chicharrón..." (Something suddenly came up); "Debo arreglarle el chicharrón a otro"
(I have to clean up someone else's mess,) and so on and so forth, the word sure sticks to you...
Working for Ficci is all about overcoming "Chicharrones." Thank you Ficci for letting me Fixate on you...
Special thanks to Rafa K´ardenas and Dayanita J. for recommending me to Joyce. To Joyce Moreno for the phone call.
To Laura Páez and Santiago Durán for trusting me with stuff to do. To Maria E. for her great advices. To Carlitos TAM (poderoso chiquitín) for everything! To Gina Romeo for acknowledging my effort. To Lina Rodríguez for hosting the Ficci parody awards and holding together this thing called Ficci. Thanks for the opportunity, hopefully see you all next year!
