5.3.18: Spark It Up

Morning: film processing (3 rolls!).

Afternoon: dance party/bread breaking/guest lecture with my lady pals Kathy Brew, Cristiana Miranda and Ángela López Ruiz for dynamo Profesora Ana Laura López de la Torre’s feminist social practice class at the School of Fine Arts.

Twilight: walk through the city, rubbing shoulders with the Uruguayos in that free-n-easy post-work mood.

Early Evening: screening of a fab program of experimental Brazilian animation curated by Cristiana Miranda as part of Montevideo Cine Experimental at the Centro Cultural de España Montevideo, late evening group dinner at Ciudadela Bar, home of–yes, I’ll say it–the BEST PIZZA IN MONTEVIDEO!

Fun Fact: The components for R9 photographic chemical bleach (sulphuric acid and potassium dichromate) are illegal and impossible to find in Urugay but weed has been decriminalized since 1974 and it’s been legal to buy since 2017…but just for citizens and registered residents! Locals are welcome to pass the dutchie to their international visitors, though…
