|The screening/reception was very very successful. Roughly 300 people
attended. Everyone is so intersted in learning about Cuba, so they were curious to see the
footage. It was held at Exit Art, this beautiful art gallery/space located in Soho. There
were 4 TV/VCR monitors placed around the room, each showing different footage which
included performances and/or
interviews with the following: 4th Imagen, Projecto F, Instinto, Pablo Herrera, Junior Clan, RCA, Explosion Suprema, Lobo Marginal, Anonimo Consejo, Hermanos de Causa. Cuban food was served and there was a breakdancer who performed. The event was sponsored by Alize and honey magazine (which features an article about the director and mentions her trip to Cuba in their current issue)
People were definitely enlightened about the presence and passion of hip hop in cuba. Press that was in attendance- vibe, blaze, mia, mtv news , essence, notorious, trace.. Editors at george and elle mag were very interested but did not attend.
