"Ccarccaria -Danzante de Tijeras" interview Cuarto Poder

And another interview that was actually on hold for several weeks. This time it was for my next film "Ccarccaria - Danzante de Tijeras".
Being government and political new more important to the audience's eyes, the TV news program pushed the interview for about 3 weeks (let's face it....film or cultural news aren't of national interest anyway...or scandalous to that level).

Finally, one day after my live interview at TV Peru, had pre-recorded one shown on Cuarto Poder (America Television). Short but a good one.

TV Peru interview

Was called for an interview for channel 7 TV Peru. Arranged a couple weeks prior but had to say no first time for they were doing an special show over the La Haya legal situation of both Peru and Chile. Said no with all due respect for the simple reason that I don't want my film to be associated with this legal dilemma among both countries for I'm not making it for that reason at all. Period.

When I started doing the historical research to write the script back in 2004 (that's 9 years ago, folks) I wasn't even aware of the maritime area in dispute. In 2009 when pre-production started, I was nowhere even watching TV or reading news about the forthcoming Haya suit for doing this film is really time-consuming.....and now, just months away from the final verdict of the La Haya, I'm finishing my film. Mere coincidence and it's true. Nobody is endorsing this but myself anyway, and my intention is loud and clear: to renew the nation's pride and love for our past heroes. That's all in a nutshell.

So, having that cleared, they understood and gave me a different date for the interview and was glad to be given plenty of time (actually they told me 10 minutes but the interview went over 17 without cut as the news director liked it, she said). I'm glad to be able to show and explain the solemn and deep intention I truly have to just have my fellow countrymen and all who value history, know what our heroes went thru and how they became what they are now: men of honor.

Hope you enjoy the interview as much as I did.
