Andrés Ospina

Distressed by a financial crisis, Lorenzo Heredia debates in between selling or staying with a seniority, the only family heritage that he has. To try to find a price for it, he must investigate the origin of this relic. Multiple voices emerge from other times to reveal more information than the desired, articulating a story that starts in the Chapinero neighbourhood in 2015 and ends with Anton Hero,  an illustrated shoemaker that sails from Cadiz in 1655.

Todo pasa pronto (Everything passes soon):

It’s november 13, 1982, and Pablo, this story’s narrator, is turning 10. It´s also the day he understands that his parents are getting a divorce. In the middle of the crisis this episode causes, and despite the epilepsy seizures he suffers from, Pablo starts remembering, imagining and re-building the memory of his family. He tells the story of his father, an intellectual leftist who still longs for the social revolution; the one of her mother, a lawyer from a bourgeois Armero family; the one of Gabriel, “the creature”, his baby brother who he still doesn´t love, and the one of his aunts, uncles and grandparents.

Altering the reality became for him a game that he then made part of his journalism. Ximénez was one of the most fascinating Colombian chronicle writers of the twentieth century.
