González participated in the Ayataqui (poem or Andean ritual of tribute to a deceased warrior) carried out on the Internet for the second anniversary of the death of the outstanding and productive film director.

He recalled that in his youth, his father encouraged him to watch ‘a feature film filled with values, a work without flaws and with an impact the size of a cathedral: Túpac Amaru’, which fueled his early interest in the culture and history of Peru.

‘I was also far from getting to know its creator and his love partner and insurmountable collaborator, Pilar Roca’, he said, and shared that when he met him, García ‘carried around an aura of cordiality and eternal satisfaction, the one that comes from having had a life of fulfillment’.

The ambassador pointed out that the great film ‘Túpac Amaru’ was enough for García to transcend, since many creators get to be known and become famous with only one work, but ‘Fico’, as the filmmaker was called, succeeded more than once.

His career includes films like the documentary ‘Kuntur Wachana’ (Where the condors are born) and fiction feature film ‘The Huayanay case’ (about a real event, a community’s settling of accounts to a cattle thief and abusive foreman of a landowner), among others.

He added that a few weeks ago he read ‘Piel de Fuego’ (Fire Skin), an erotic novel by García that he defined as a fictionalized investigation of a part of Peruvian reality that has to do with the phenomena of trans-culturation, acculturation, racism, social inequalities and exploitation.

‘I owe it to Fico and Pilar, to ‘Latin Americanists’ and the anti-imperialist vocation of both, with their freedom passion and call for the emancipation of men. Any tribute is small, but this is well deserved’, the diplomat said.
