CHAVEZ

Everyone knows his voice, no one’s seen his face. Chavez is ubiquitous and invisible all at once. As the voice of Radio Gigante, Chavez preaches a gospel of peace and reconciliation, but he is also the leader of Gigante, the oldest, biggest gang in the city, a gang that defends its turf and enforces its will no less violently than any other. His message is a powerful one, and needed, but its sincerity is severely undercut by his real-world position. Who stands to benefit most from a gang truce? The gang that’s the biggest.
