NECRODRAMA ABOUT FABIAN POLOSECKI, JOURNALIST (1964-1996)

Fabián Polosecki 

 

The 3rd of December 1996 decided to end with his life, throwing himself under a train. He left behind him a prolific career as a journalist, which started in Radiolandia (a magazine), working under the orders of Catalina Dlugi, and reached its highest peak in becoming the maker of a cultural revolution never seen before in television. He created two shows that had as a goal something that seemed impossible: telling the stories of the outcasts and unknowns. With “The other side” and “The visitor”, “Polo” became the listener of voices never heard before.He was born the 31st July 1964.
