The story about Paco and Pepe is moving forward…swiftly.
My South American agent, TransTerra, already has a couple of clients interested in the story and I haven’t even set foot in The Hidden City yet. There’s something mysterical, magical and menacing about this story that is already capturing the attention of people all over the globe.
Last night I got an email from the director of Conviven. He was answering my request for an interview and a ticket into The Hidden City. He said he’s glad someone is willing to turn the light on the situation here in Buenos Aires’ poorest and most violent barrio.
Conviven is a NGO in Argentina. Conviven’s goal is to promote social and community development for children, teenagers and families living in the Hidden City.
The Hidden City is so violent that even the “policia” won’t go there and in September, a photojournalist from France was shot and killed before he even step foot into this forbidden zone.
I hope to be able to spend a couple nights there.
