Author: Roberto Fuentes

Fiction or Non-Fiction: Fiction
Betto is an eight year old boy who lives in Santiago's Central Station, at the beginning of the 80s. His experiences are captured in a daily life with a vivid language. You will learn about the characters in the neighborhood: friends, grocers, streets, parties with friends and even the landfill nearby. Unlike other children's or youth stories, Betto does not seek to idealize the space of childhood, nor to constitute a neutral environment. From his perspective as a child, Betto analyzes economic needs, political preferences and fashion.
