FRIDAY: "The Dicaprio from Corozopando" by Phillipe van Hissenhoven (Venezuela)

Gregorio, the mayor of Corozopando, has always wanted to bring world recognition to his tiny town. Although this aspiration seems far fetched, one night the prophecy of a spirit magically convinces both Gregorio and the rest of the inhabitants to place their hopes in a child named Rubén Darío, imposing on him the responsibility of bringing the fame to the town. For his part, Rubén innocently assumes this responsibility and he insists on doing everything possible to bring the small, remote community fame and fortune.
