In the beginning, a newspaper. Children browse through it, identify the news, some are unusual, other more mundane, from which they choose: what stories will they listen? A reader’s first choice — and the first choice of the audience in Gustavo Vicente’s Sr. Ninguém. The news, however, aren’t about current journalistic events. They are timeless stories, collected and adapted for the most part in Luís Sepulveda’s Rosas de Atacama. The subject of these stories are men, women — and even a dog! — who refuse to give in, who resist resignation, who undertake small anonymous revolutions. Isn’t this what newspapers are for? To show us why life deserves to be lived? The printed newspapers seem like something from long ago, disused materials, that younger generation see with distrust and consider uninteresting. What relationship do children nowadays have with the news? When and how do they come into their lives? Is there an appropriate age to start reading newspapers? To read about what goes on in the world? Isn’t knowing how to r-e-a-d enough?
