A chat with Orestes Matacena & Fausta Wertz about Cuba today

A few days ago, Alberto introduced some of our readers to Orestes Matacena, the very successful Cuban-American filmmaker:

"His most recently produced screenplay was "Bitter Sugar," a love story that takes place in today's tyrannical Cuba.

It opened to excellent reviews and has done extremely well at the box office both in the US and internationally, "Bitter Sugar" has been shown to the Human Rights Commission in Geneva, Switzerland and to the US Congress.

For Mr. Matacena that was spiritually rewarding."

We spoke with Orestes on Wednesday's show PLUS Fausta Wertz, the editor of Fausta's Blog.
