A confident illustration about knowing how to laugh. Laugh about the pain and turn it into something else: this is what Leticia Jorge does in her second work Alelí. The Mazzotti family is warm, enchanting, insane; the father’s death is the backstory of the odd and absurd misfortunes that occur in a day. A family black comedy that follows a classic pattern: as a member of the family passes away, the relatives attempt to deal with the emotional and material heritage which the departed left behind.
