On Tuesday we returned to Yale to screen Return to the Andes, hosted by Margherita Tortora, founder of the Latino and Iberian Film Festival at Yale - LIFFY. A great discussion followed. The tweaks we made after our screening in the Bronx went over well. On Wednesday, I visited Margherita's Latin American Cinema class. Special bonus: legendary white clam pizza at Pepe's Pizza.
"Thank for sharing your film. It is a powerful message of what could be when women in Peru obtain leadership positions — especially political power. As the son of an Ayacuchana and former labor leader in Peru, I know how difficult the process for change can be. We will continue to support your efforts always as you provide platforms that celebrate Andean women and the culture we have. Blessings." — Martin Sanchez Rojas
This is the best screening we have in long time. A great turnout...Thank you."
— Oscar Gonzalez Barreto (film series curator)
