I know this posting comes late, as the encore screening was Aug. 13, but I have a good excuse! I've been doing research in Paraguay with limited internet access for the past four weeks.
Anyhoo, my personal adventures aside (don't worry, a blog dedicated to the trip will follow),I'd like to give this film some attention. Jorge Luis Urbina, a local Tucson Filmmaker and UA employee of The School of Media Arts, directed it with fellow filmmaker Benjamin Lopez, who wrote and produced the project.
In Urbina's own words, Caramelo follows the relationship between Miguel, a free spirited young student and Jose, a school janitor who carries the burden of a tragic-filled past of the Tlatelolco Student Massacre of 68'.
