Cuban Music Video Making - Behind the Scenes
Time & Location
About the Event
A vibrant evening with Havana- born, Glasgow-based documentary filmmaker and salsa music video director Alejandro Valera, in partnership with Refuweegee.
Alejandro has directed music videos for some of Cuba’s top salsa bands and has just finished his first documentary film - El Niño y la Verdad - which will premiere at HGFF19. Alejandro is founder of ValeraFilms - an independent audio-visual production company started in Havana in 2014 when Ale graduated as a Director of Photography from Cuba’s Higher Institute of Art.
Join him for an exciting session where he will screen some of his favourite work, the issues facing filmmakers in Cuba and 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.
