In this episode we hear from Carlos Gutiérrez, co-programmer of Cinema Tucson and co-founding director of Cinema Tropical. Carlos tells us about Cinema Tucson (the newest iteration of Tucson Cine Mexico) and the upcoming screening on Oct. 17 at The Fox Tucson Theater. We also talk about what Carlos looks for in a film, Mexican cinema history and present, how Carlos came to co-create Cinema Tropical 20 years ago and how he stuck it out! We talk about the juxtaposition of New York City’s cultural scene with Tucson’s (as Carlos lives in both worlds) and a bit about how COVID affected film production and film watching.
