ALIVE IN HAVANA                                12MIN

'Alive in Havana' is a story about Mario Mora, an
Americanized Cuban struggling with life in Havana.
While grateful that the Cuban government accepted
him when he faced deportation from the United States
in 1999, he speaks openly about the frustrations of daily
life here. With a frankness rarely seen in this nation,
Mario shares with us the ways his friends and
neighbors contend with the hardships and politics. Most
of all, he
struggles with isolation from his family, who remain in
the U.S.

Directed and Produced by Wesley Cho.

SINGING IN SIBERIA                                60MIN

A community chorus from Boston travels 3000 miles
across Russia in a musical exchange that defies
cultural boundaries. This eclectic group of characters
thrown into the Siberian outback makes for a comedic,
yet poignant journey. They teach us all a lesson in how
individuals can make a difference.
