power in the pristine
I am always open for a language lesson, often needing to express myself to audiences the world over. And since I was addressing 500+ Chileans later that night, Mateo and his girlfriend Fran, painstakingly taught me the subtle differences between ‘cuatico’, ‘filete’, ‘hueon’ and ‘po’. All useful words, slang of course, and I listened attentively during an impromptu training.
I was in Santiago for a screening of two films, 180º South and Power in the Pristine, as well to emcee and play reggae music on stage for 3-nights. It was the 3-day Adventure Film Festival held in the urban gardens of the Cultural Center of Los Condes in Chile’s thriving capital, where almost one third of its 17-million inhabitants live.
