Congratulations to CMCM member Dick Jordan, whose feature-length documentary "Cuba, Libre?" has been awarded an "Honorable Mention" from the SaMo Indie Fest film festival that will take place in Santa Monica, CA in November.
Exploring travel to Cuba by Americans from the early decades of the 20th century to the present day, "Cuba, Libre?" aired on MarinTV in January of this year and had a special screening at CMCM in February. The film was also shown at the Visual Radio Television Network Festival in Oakland in April, and the Sausalito and San Francisco public libraries as part of their respective film programs.
Kudos to Dick, who thanks Cynthia Abbott, Allen Bronstein, Gael Chandler, Marguerite Elliott and other CMCM members and guest instructors for providing critical feedback on the film during post-production.

Chelis Lopez interviews La Patrona, Guadalupe Gonzalez, Director Arturo González Villaseñor, Director of Photography Antonio Mecalco and Painter Claudio Talavera-Ballon, talking about the film premiere "All of Me" and the exhibition "Mujeres Luz" a painting series inspired by the documentary.
Mexico shares with the US the biggest border between the first and the third world US border. That makes the bridge of thousands of migrants crossing the country mounted on the back of the train “The Beast,” exposed to all the dangers. There, they find the “Patronas,” a group of Mexican women that prepare warm food and water for the migrants riding the train.
