Remarks shared after Festival visit

“This trip to Cuba is such an eye opener. I met lots of filmmakers and artists from around the world, and being in Cuba itself is just an inspiration. At first, I was worried about lifelogging in Cuba as it seems to be a closed and conservative country, but everything turned out fine. In fact, the audiences were patient and curious about art that they were not familiar with, and were eager to talk to directors/ artists. ”

— Shared by Kwan Tsz-wai Alan, director of Explosion, after attending 5th International Festival of Video-art, FIVAC Camaguey in Cuba, under the sponsorship of NAE.
