As part of the activities scheduled for the 37th Guadalajara International Film Festival (FICG37), today Saturday 11 June at 7:00 pm, at the Santander Performing Arts Ensemble, the show “Los Ilustres” linen workers & Mont/ photographer standShowcase of “ridiculous, everyday and political humor” by graphic artists Ricardo Seri Linersfrom Argentina, Chile, and Ecuador Alberto Mont.
linen workers – Internationally recognized for comedy “Makanodo” – in an interview with correspondent He declares himself “happy” to be back in town with the FICG argument, “I missed and needed my Guadalajara dose; after several book fairs (FIL), shows with Kevin (Johansen) and others with my friend (Alberto) Montt, I can’t wait to get there.”
Friends above all
In this sense, the cartoonist explains, these collaborations emerged a few years ago, “It was a very organic thing, at first we became friends because otherwise I wouldn’t have thought of doing something like that with someone who wasn’t. I think something similar happened to Kevin and Mont. Over 20 years ago, when I started drawing sketches and stuff with Kevin, he told me that “the party’s on stage,” the fact that it was and I lost my shyness when I went with him to the forum.“.
And after many shows and “all kinds of adventures,” Liners commented, “Have we talked about this before Mont And I think doing stand up makes sense, and we made the mistake of commenting out loud to our editors (6th floor) at FILLike stupid after several tequila. Then they said ‘We do that year’ incoming ‘ And suddenly, a year later, we went up to the stage. This is where we started, and we really enjoyed it. But we’re renewing it because we’ve already done it a few times.”
In this regard, Mont adds: “The show started out of the need for the Liniers and I to come together to talk. It’s kind of crazy different every time, there are topics that recur, because it’s what interests us, but there are also ways to cover them. After a long period of not doing that, what we’re going to do is stand on stage and talk about what happened to us in the last year and a half. We have a talk show podcast called Life is Amazing, and we wanted to see what would happen if we put the podcast live. “
Similarities and confusion
The painter claims that “At first, we were surprised that the show worked in so many different countries. Sometimes we think we are completely different, the Argentine is different from the Mexican and so on, but we all lose the same, we have corrupt governments and economic problems, even though we are 99 percent the same. percent ; Except for naming some things with other words, we’re almost the same.”
“Of course, above all we thought it wouldn’t work,” notes Liniers, “and there may also be some confusion, where one draws while the other speaks and so we confuse them a little so that they don’t realize we’re so bad at doing both.”
And, of course, the Argentine Monero stands out,”We also invented a small part of this show to see each other, because we don’t live in the same country (I’m in the US, he’s in France), then it was possible to think that we’d probably never see each other again; I think, besides, that a lot of what happens in the basement happens on the stage; My wife once told me that what we do is like when we have lunch together, we say the same nonsense (that nonsense) and on top of that we sue people.”
Now, considering that it is now presented in a framework FICG“We may now call our side a little Cineville“, Confirms linen workers“to talk about deep movies, and think a lot, like”king Kong or ‘Back to future’. But well, everything that happens on stage has a smell of adrenaline, everything is happening at the moment and at a different speed. ”
Regarding that, the graphic artist details, “I’ve always said that those of us who draw are like smarts in slow motion, we’re saying something but thinking every word and every little line. You might have thought of something you’d read in seven seconds for three hours. We’re good, but we’re in slow motion; Although this option is not available in the show, although I think to achieve this we visit another part of our brain.”
draw like a bridge
In the end, Liniers points out, onstage “We give people something that I don’t do in ‘Macanudo,’ when I work outside the comic strip I don’t want it to be more than the same, I want to find other things other things and materials. If I paint, I paint better.” Different. My personal research may be in comedy, but if I go somewhere else, it’s something else, and sometimes I surprise the viewer.”
