Wrapping up the last parts of the war survivor scenes with Reynaldo, Pold and Flor de Maria. I am greatful to Raul Zambrano and family for lending his beautiful turn-of-the-century house for the shots. This is the third time with Pold, fourth time with Reynaldo and first with Flor de Maria. Pleasure working with them. Always nailing it.
This time we finally used that old trunk I bought at the Surquillo antique/flea market back in 2011. While looking for old stuff for these scenes I stumbled across the trunk and saw it as a perfect prop for Vicente's memories placement. Beautiful one. Pricey but worth every cent. At the cachina I got myself after much searching some very old newspapers dating from the very early years of the XX century up until 1929, specially the ones that talked about the Plebiscito, the Tacna and Arica situation and the "chilenización" that took place in those decades after the war.
|Beautiful old trunk. Perfect for Vicente's memories.|
|Newspapers from the Tacna captivity decades. This dates to 1911.|
|A thorough search worth every penny.|
Being an old neighborhood, Barranco is not only a sight to see but also a plethora of stories and old tales from the war.
Coming home now. Feeling a bit stuffy and have runny nose. Seems like a big cold is about to come.
