THIS WEEK ON LATINOPIA: POLI MARICHAL’S EXQUISITE PRINTS, JOSÉ MURATTI’S “SINCRONIZAR,” MARIA JIMÉNEZ HENLEY ON WEST SIDE STORY AND SERGIO HERNÁNDEZ ON JEFF SESSION’S CONFESSION.
We continue with Puerto Rican month on Latinopia with a profile of multi-genre artist Poli Marichal who reveals the passion that drives her printmaking. This work is stunning, don’t miss it! Our regular Blogger José Muratti returns with his Utopias Descifrados (Undisciphered Utopias) , this week we shares with us an original poem, “Sincronizar” which we are posting in Spanish and English. José continues to amaze with the subtle and inventive use of metaphor and language. We also reprise an interview with Assistant Director María Jiménez Henley. María shares with us her experiences early in her career (when she was a dancer and singer) when she was cast in the epic motion picture West Side Story and had to decide between being in the film or risking her life. Don’t miss her amazing story. And no week on Latinopia would be complete without a comic word from our dear friend and master cartoonist Sergio Hernández. This week he looks at what happens when Attorney General Jeff Sessions visits the confession booth.
As always enjoy your week on Latinopia!
