Havana-born Alejandro Valera has directed music videos for some of Cuba’s top salsa bands and has just finished his first documentary film – De Vuelta al Barrio / Back to the Neighbourhood – which has its world premiere at HGFF19. Join him for an exciting session where he will screen some of his favourite work, discuss production techniques and lead practical exercises which reveal the processes he uses. For everyone interested in filmmaking, Cuban culture and/or salsa music and dance. Aimed at 18-30yr olds, but open to all.
