The documentary short, El Flaco, continues its run at Cinema Burrito Film Festival premiering this Saturday, July 8th in Medellin, Colombia. El Flaco will screen along with ten other short films showcasing the border community of El Paso, Texas and Juarez, Mexico at Casa Solaris. Producer and Director, Krisstian de Lara is delighted to bring the story of El Flaco to an international audience and is pleased that border stories are making their way to an international appeal.
Cinema Burrito Film Festival, “La generación que nunca fue” (The generation that never was), will showcase shorts, stories and documentaries exclusively from eight independent filmmakers originally from the border community. The festival is organized by Alfonso Duarte, Daniela Uribe and Federico Martínez and will be presented by Folks, Cool Raccoon, and Casa Solaris.
The director of the film festival and filmmaker, Alfonso Duarte, speaks exclusively in an interview for Kn2s Productions about why he believes films from the border community are important, “Because it is a unique part of the world. Many people have seen series such as Breaking Bad or films such as Paris, Texas and have fallen in love with the desert scene. We as emerging filmmakers have to embrace our background and people.”
De Lara explains, during an interview for Kn2s Productions, why is there is so much interest about border stories, particularly from Juarez, “Juarenses are working people, seeking a better future, just like El Flaco, and I am glad Cinema Burrito is putting a spotlight on the works of exactly these kind of people, in front and behind the camera.”
El Flaco is a five minute documentary featuring a male prostitute who pays for police protection to be able to work in downtown streets of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, produced by Kn2s Productions.
