Synopsis: This is a video documentation of Barbi Bermúdez and Fabi Fernández’s TV show ‘Tercer Impacto,’ performed live at El Museo del Barrio. Barbi and Fabi share the stage with 158-years-old Doña Cuca, whose longevity has inspired Western medicine to develop the amazing health supplement ‘Hispanacea.’ Doña Cuca opens her shopping trolley, full of US patriotism’s treasures, to have a ‘tea party’... although perhaps a ‘cafecito negro cola’o’ would be tastier for these Latinas.Fulana is a video and performance collective created in 2000 by four Latinas in New York City (Cristina Ibarra, Marlène Ramírez-Cancio, Lisandra Ramos-Grullón & Andrea Thome). Using parody and satire, their work delves into topics affecting the Latino communities in the U.S., and responds to the ways products and ideas are marketed and sold to us through the mass media.
