Charro with AIDS focus of film festival’s best documentary

The best documentary award at the Guadalajara International Film Festival, which concluded last Sunday, went to Jose Villalobos’ directorial debut, “El Charro de Toluquilla,” a portrait of Jaime Garcia, a womanizing mariachi singer from Jalisco whose life is split between a fantasy world,  his battle with AIDS and the deep love for his small daughter.
