A DAY AT THE UNITED NATIONS...

As a native New Yorker, I don't recall ever visiting the United Nations,  not even as a child on a class trip... But today I spent time at the UN as a guest at a conference on "racism" as a panel discussed "Self-Representation as a Strategy to Fight Racism" hosted by Brazil.  "Racism" is one of the social issues very important to me and I was happy to be invited.  I am looking forward to continuing to do my part through the arts and hopefully as part of  an international collaboration.

GET READY... GET SET... GO!!!!!!!

Preparing for our upcoming rehearsal for the next shoot of A Wound In Time: The Upcoming Feature Film. We'll be blocking scenes with Lourdes (Irma Cadiz) wilding out on Tony (Francisco Ramos) on First Avenue in front of Bobby (Evan Davis), the wiseguys, Clinton (Stacey Griffin), Chee Chee (Rock Jones), and the neighbors; with Marta (Christina Laboy) purchasing a rooster; with a young Millie (Millie Ortiz) meeting her future husband Ruben (Ralph Hopkins) on the beach in Matanzas, Cuba; and with Tony chillin' on the beach in Coney Island. The rush is on to get all exteriors done before the weather changes... Thanks to those who helped in this effort.

Also I'll be shopping around for a theatre to mount the entire trilogy, "Women You Thought You Knew", before year's end.  Hopefully...
