It’s quite easy to be a culture vulture here. Last Tuesday I went to a Reel Docs screening of Joan Rivers, A Piece of Work which is an irreverent and hilarious master piece of cinema verite. The cinematographer was present to answer questions at a Margarita reception at the Biblioteca in Centro. Here is a link to the official theatrical trailer that does not contain too many spoilers.
And coming up is this very interesting live there thriller also at the Santa Anna Teatro/Theatre on February 5th. My arts and culture calendar is filling up and I haven’t even got this week’s Attencion weekly newspaper yet. It was sold right out/SR0 at both the Biblioteca and Juan’s Cafe on Relox Calle early last week so I better hustle down Homobono hill Calle to pick up a copy today!
Btw, the Attencion is a fully bilingual weekly newspaper here in San Miquel that comes out on Fridays/Viernes. A mere 15 pesos, there are lots of interesting articles to read besides the Que Pasa arts and entertainment guide which you will want to peruse immediately and make note of special events, gallery openings, film screenings and a host of wondrous arts and culturally rich offerings which mostly can be attended at a very modest cost.
And yes, this very informative paper can be read including the classified ads online at
