Earlier this week I had the opportunity to see a special preview of The Return of Lencho, the first full-length film written and directed by four-time Emmy Award winning producer Mario Rosales. I’ve been, since, haunted by its vivid portrayal of the ruthless brutality directed against street artists and youth in Rosales’s native Guatemala. Featuring the artwork of Stinkfish, Bastardilla, Aeon and Soft, The Return of Lencho opens tomorrow evening for a one-week run at Manhattan’s Quad Cinema. Mario Rosales will be there to answer questions following tomorrow’s and Saturday’s 7:50pm show and Sunday’s 5pm show.
