Carteles de la marcha: #KeikoNoVa, vol. 3

El domingo en Perú se escoge entre continuar con la democracia que tantas cosas buenas nos ha traído, o retroceder hacia la dictadura y la corrupción.

Cuando haya viajeros del tiempo turistas, los peruanos del futuro vendrán a esta semana a entender cómo se salvó, o se acabó de joder, el Perú.

Pero hasta que eso suceda, vota por PPK. La moral personal no se puede poner como excusa para mirar hacia otro lado, lavarse las manos, y dejar que secuestren al Perú aquellos que lo destruyeron en los años noventa.

—Richard Stallman on the 30th anniversary of the GNU Manifesto.

Tom DiCillo on directing actors

What I learned as an actor and from watching really good actors is that it’s important to really give them the sense that you are really seeing what they’re doing. Because they look to you, and you have to let them know that if they try something in a scene that you have witnessed it, and that you’re able to identify it. It’s such an important knowledge. If you don’t know that language, or how to get a performance or how to help an actor, it’s like you’re going in with two hands tied behind your back.
