GABO IS GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN, ANGELA ROA IN PERFORMANCE, CAROS AVILA ON “PRICE OF GLORY,” WW II VETERANS MAKE A DIFFERENCE THIS WEEK ON LATINOPIA.
The Latinopia family is deeply saddened this week by the loss of the great Colombian writer Gabriel García Marqúez. This week’s Latinopia edition features remembrances of Gabo, as he was universally known, by two regular contributors to Latinopia, journalist Luis R. Torres and filmmaker Jesús Salvador Treviño. For mroe on Gabo’s passing, see these links:
On a more positive note, we are proud to announce the publication of Latinopia’s 300th video, a visit with Chilean born singer Angela Roa who performs an original composition, “Se Enfrenta La Tempestad” (We Face The Storm). Don’t miss electrifying performance.
Our second new video this week is a visit with filmmaker and director Carlos Avila. He speaks about the making of his feature film, “Price of Glory.” The film, which stars Jimmy Smits, Maria Del Mar, Clifton Collins, Ron Perlman and Jon Seda grew from an envisioned low budget production to a major motion picture. Carlos tells us about this journey.
Our bloggers return. Sal Baldenegro weighs in on the impact of the World War Two generation on Arizona politics and society in his POLITICAL SALSA Y MÁS BLOG. Angela Ortiz returns with another great PHOTO OF THE WEEK, this week, “Something Old,” and Lazaro De La Tierra crafts his mind-reading skills on Pearl in the latest episode of ZOMBIE MEX DIARIES.
Enjoy this week on Latinopia!
