Buenos Aires Festival de Cine International published a fantastic Spanish language book on Boggy - 'The Last Witness', featuring an essay by Festival director Javier Porta Fouz called 'Springsteen, Ford, Bogdanovich - Connections' - what?! I'm never leaving. Hung with the Festival's Juan Manuel Dominguez, who did a brilliant interview with Peter called 'We All Laughed' - among the best I've read. With him, saw great Argentinian indie bands , talked Marvel comics, Gil Kane, Grant Morrison. Met amazing filmmakers like Axel Kuschevatzky and Seba de Caro. I. Am. Never. Leaving. What a city for film, music, writing.
