Friday Aug 17   03:00 PM to 04:00 PM (1 hour)
At the Golden Globes when asked how he balanced darkness and joy, Guillermo del Toro answered "Because I'm Mexican". What does "being Mexican" mean within the context of science fiction? What does writing in Spanish mean for its future? There's movement on the other side of the border, a one-sided conversation where English-language SF is happening. We want to expand it and bring it forward. All over Latin America and Spain, SFi is rising again. We want to talk about what shapes it is taking, and how this viewpoint may be changing. Is there a Latino-futurism? What does it look like?
