  • asombra: To my mind, Ventura and Franken did for Minnesota what Ted Kennedy did for Massachusetts: I cannot respect either state.

  • asombra: This guy strikes me as the embodiment of the worst political stereotype–just seeing him makes my skin crawl. Talk about...

  • asombra: Cretina and Putin, the Botox twins. Ugh.

  • asombra: That Delia crone is almost too witchy to be true. Perfect casting, though.

  • asombra: Of course, with Latrines, it’s never, EVER their fault. At least Cubans, or some of them, admit their own failures.

Documentary “Cubamerican” to be screened in Washington D.C. and New York City

download

Oliver Stone, beware!  It's a film about those  "embittered exiles" you loathe so much. 

Filmmaker José Enrique Pardo's documentary "Cubamerican" -- which has already received wide acclaim after screenings in Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle, Miami, Tampa, Key West, Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach -- is headed for two major East Coast cities this week: Washington D.C. and New York.

The film features 21 Cuban exiles who have made the most of their lives in the USA, some well-known, such as actors Andy Garcia and Steven Bauer, and others not-so-well-known, such as Yours Truly, Tres Fotutos.  In the words of the producer-director, the film  "highlights the absolute need for all of the world's people to be able to freely exercise their fundamental human rights."

In Washington D.C. , excerpts from the film will be screened at the embassy of the Czech Republic, on Wednesday 19 March.  For details, and tickets, please contact the embassy directly:

3900 Spring of Freedom Street, NW, Washington, DC 20008.  RSVP to pol_washington@embassy.mzv.cz   Please put “CUBAMERICAN” in the subject line.

At this screening, Cuba Democracy Advocates executive director Mauricio Claver-Carone will moderate a discussion between the film's writer-producer-director José Enrique Pardo and Cuban blogger-photographer Orlando Luis Pardo Lazo.

In New York, the film will have two screenings on Saturday 22 March, at 5pm and 8:15pm, at Leonard Nimoy Thalia Theater at Peter Norton Symphony Space (Broadway at 95th St.).

Tickets for this event can be purchased at: Symphony Space box office (212) 864-5400,  or at  www.cubamericanthemovie.com/screenings.

If Amtrak performs adequately, yours truly will make a stop in New York after a three-day conference in Baltimore and  engage with the director and the audience after the 5 pm screening.

    While you are there, sir, please get them to have a screening in Philadelphia and be sure to let us know well in advance if they decide to do that.
    Also can you get them to put it on TV or make it available on DVD, please.

  • He's too modest to put it on the headline, gang. But our own Carlos features prominently in this superb documentary.

  • asombra

    No doubt this is very worthwhile and may do some good among non-Cubans, but NOTHING will change the willfully blind, who simply don't care about the truth and will dismiss this as "those people" carrying on.

    I do so much wish I could see this.
