We are delighted to report that our crowdfunding effort to support our new series, (R)EVOLUTION CUBA: Stories of Art and Change, is steaming along. As we approach the halfway point this weekend, we are within reach of 50% of our goal. Many thanks to our incredibly generous supporters who’ve jumped in already. If you’re considering becoming a backer, please take a look at the trailer and see if it’s something you’d like to support: bit.ly/revolutioncubadocs.
To celebrate, share our work, and deepen conversation on what’s happening in Cuba right now, we are hosting two Bay Area events:
CUBA NIGHT: February 23 in Berkeley - FREE
We will be screening a sneak preview of our upcoming short film THE WHEEL OF LIFE, featuring El Oso, one of the founders of Casino (the unheralded godmother of salsa), and hosting a discussion of the intersection of art, socialism and the market in contemporary Cuba.
RSVP and details at: bit.ly/revcubaberkeley
Film, Salsa, and Celebration: February 24 in San Francisco
The beloved Bissap Baobab in SF’s Mission District is hosting a free salsa party and has generously offered to donate 20% of the night's proceeds! Admission is free before 10pm. If you want to join a select few for a West African dinner with us, back (R)EVOLUTION CUBA at the $100 or higher level @bit.ly/revolutioncubadocs.
RSVP and details at: bit.ly/baobabsalsa
We hope to see you here or there, and welcome your tax-deductible donations any way that’s easy.

P.S. Our friends Gaby and Drew hosted an incredible party to introduce us and our project to their pals. We’d love to meet your friends too, and share more about our work. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to host your own Kickstarter Party.
