Video Interview with Cesar Galindo, Director of Gringa

Cesar Galindo, director and co-writer of feature film GRINGA, set in Cuzco and Machu Picchu,Perú, spoke to us about what inspired him to create a dark comedy on the relationship between bricheros and gringas. “Brichero”, a term which GRINGA’s co-writer Mario Guevara contributed to the Peruvian literature, stands for “gringa hunter”, where “gringa” is the colloquial word for “foreign tourist”. Galindo also explains how “bricherismo” is a life style, typically encountered in the world’s tourist places. More on this phenomenon, as well as exclusive footage from movie GRINGA, in the video interview below.
