Cuentos de Cipotes
Animation / 2008 / 20 min / El Salvador
Director: Ricardo Barahona
A cartoon adaptation of Salvador Salazar Arrué’s (Salarrrué) regular short stories in the newspaper Patria in the late 20s. Collected 30 years later as Cuentos de Cipotes (Children’s Stories), these are amongst his most enduring work, reflecting an idealized version of rural life in El Salvador and making him one of the founders of the new wave of Latin American folkloric narrative.
