Friday PSA

Just a quick public service announcement this Friday morning:

If you live in South Florida, dont forget about the screening of “Driving Lessons”, the short film about the final moments of a balsero as he leaves the island, produced and directed by good friend Quincy Perkins. I spoke about this short film on this week’s BTR radio show. We ran this film at Cuba Nostalgia and there was not a dry eye in the place.

When and where:

Ft. Lauderdale International Film Festival!!!! It will show on NOVEMBER 4th, at 3PM at the Miniaci Theater on Nova Southeastern University Campus.

Also, from Quincy, the following:

I am trying to put together a poster for DRIVING LESSONS that I can publicize the movie with. If there are any designers who read your blog that would donate their time to create a poster for me, I can’t tell you how grateful I would be…

I used a designer down here who created a good poster, but then in conversation with me when handing me the CD (and after chit-chat about Fidel’s death) he said, “I’ve never understood how so many people could hate him so much, he seems like a revolutionary to me…” I was stunned. Stunned. I walked outside. I didn’t know where to even start. After a moment, I placed the CD of the poster back into his mailbox outside and left.

No matter how good the poster, it would be linked (for me) to that thought.

I know you can understand.

Needless to say, I am overjoyed at this acceptance and ability to show those minutes before a Cuban refugee steps into a raft that may or may not carry him across the sea, but more immportantly carries him away from Cuba.

I extend an invitation for you and readers to join me on Nov. 4th for a great showing!!!

If there’s any graphic designer out there, whether professional or hobbyist, that would like to help Quincy out, email me and Ill hook you all up.

  1. In one of the articles under the referenced news website, it’s noted:

    “Dimitris also grilled Izquierdo about where he was staying in the U.S., how much money he earned in Cuba and who was paying for his stay in Miami. The answer: a wealthy Cuban-American who supports greater exchange between Cuba and the U.S.

    Has it been disclosed “who” the who is? Has the media looked deeper into this? Does anyone know who in the USA is bankrolling his litigation?

  2. My apologies for my previous comment. I meant to insert this in the prior post. Moderator if you can correct pls, tks.
