Well, you see, it’s a lot like holding a comedy festival in hell….
Everyone knows that the Castro Kingdom has the finest television and radio programming on the planet. So much choice, and such high quality offerings. Such openness to diversity and freedom of expression. Such cutting-edge technology. And... let's not forget the high bar that the Kingdom sets for the exchange of ideas and unbiased investigative reporting.
So, could there be any better place to hold a radio and television festival? Who could resist attending?
World trend-setter Angola is leading the stampede. And Rui Vasco, Angola's delegate to the festival, is itching to attend all those thrilling seminars (especially the one on “perspectives of gender and means”), and, above all, that spectacular closing ceremony.
