Mario César, Strokes in a Notebook

Scésar Gecé/ February 20, 2019/ Sin categoría/ 0 comments

Random scenes of everyday, of what you find on the streets. Notebook (Cuaderno de Notas in spanish, Mario César Castro, 2018) is an observation —or poetry— of the city, of what happens and we can not see it with certain clarity. Mario César’s film expresses freedom. The images fluctuate, as he says, “each scene is the beginning and the ending

Kill The Zine, Fanzine or die

Jhoselin Castillo/ December 20, 2018/ Fanzine/ 0 comments

Kill The Zine, is a countercultural fanzine that has already 3 years in the independent market, started in August 2015 and has not stopped until now. It’s dedicated to the diffusion of bands, of music, of movies and, apparently to what they enter without fear: politic. I met Juan Pablo (Enrique Umbral), one of the Fanzine creators in the Quilca’s

Respiro, a movie hacking by its own director

Scésar Gecé/ November 14, 2018/ Movies/ 0 comments

Chronicle behind the camera of how the idea of Respiro and self-hacking was born. After one of the screens that Respiro had, I was able to maintain contact with Romero Silvano. So, what’s next for the movie, I asked him repeatedly. She did not know that, so I suggested things to her: festivals, other alternative screen-rooms, uploading it to YouTube,

A mic plus pedalboard and poetry, iqual Bruno.50

A film was going to be presented in Espacio Plataforma, but Bruno.50 did it before. I was on the poster as an experimental rap. Maybe that sign is not completely accurate, although it did have things that attracted attention: loops, effects on the voice and its performance. I recorded all that set. He had another presentation in Lima Norte and

Scésar Gecé/ October 11, 2018/ Movies/ 0 comments

Hibrido, strapped to the constancy

Scésar Gecé/ October 4, 2018/ Music/ 0 comments

The three of us had arrived, ready for what we have to do. The host opened the door, we passed and everything became dark. The house was not a house but a property to rent, or adapted to rent or for whatever. The stairs with flat steps took us to another thick darkness. We went through some semi-open rooms, some

Inside the extensive Plaza Peru park, in the district of San Martín de Porres, people meet to do recreational activity. There are health campaigns from time to time and events held by mayors or mayoral candidates. To the front a parish is erected and, although it is a small dome, it is as striking as the adjacent park. Next to
