Escritor Marcos Villatoro es un Pocho. Definición: fruta podrida; y un mestizo que no sabe nade de sus raíces latina. Por eso va a su país de sangre, El Salvador, para buscar a su familia perdida. Lo que encuentra lo deja más perdido, y trastornado.
Writer Marcos Villlatoro is a Pocho. Definition: a piece of rotting fruit; and a halfbreed Latino who knows nothing about his roots. Marcos means to change that: he travels to his other country of El Salvador to search for his family. What he finds leaves him even more lost, and disturbed, than being labeled a pocho.
'Tamale Road' has been invited to The New England Film Festival in Boston, The Pan-American Film Festival in Boulder, Colorado, The University of Kansas, University of Arkansas, with possible showings in El Salvador. Dates will be posted soon.
