Do you have plans this coming Wednesday?


If not, you might want to come to the Museo de la Ciudad de México (Calle Pino Suárez #30, Centro Histórico, near both the Zocalo and Pino Suárez metro stations) at 6:30 pm. First, they will screen Los ladrones viejos, an extraordinary documentary by Everardo González, which is more or less a Mexican version of Good Fellas, only it's all too real. Afterwards, González and I will present J.M. Servín's book D.F. confidencial, a tragicomic series of crónicas about some of the more desperate sides of Mexico City. For those who stick it out, mezcal will be served after the proceedings. That is this Wednesday, the 22nd, at 6:30 pm.
