WFC El Salvador: Sobreviviendo Guazapa

Man, I’m having having almost no luck with these Central American films. South America: Wonderful. Central America: Not so much. But I guess these countries are a lot smaller (and poorer), so perhaps that’s not that odd…

Anyway, this is pretty bad. And I even ended up buying the DVD twice, since it turned out that the one that said “Surviving Guazapo” didn’t have English subtitles, but the one that said “Sobreviviendo Guazapa” did.


I just watched the “making of” film on the DVD, and it was apparently all bluescreened: Nothing actually filmed in the jungle? I had no idea. So: Kudos on the compositing.
