We begin this episode with Alex Kruz, a war veteran turned philanthropist, actor, and producer. In his apartment, he talks to us about his experience with PTSD, the motives that led him to lose what he loved most, and how he was able to get his life back through audiovisual art projects and humanitarian assistance.
Later, we'll go to Harlem to interview the founders and directors of The Manhattan Camerata, an orchestra that mixes music from different eras and countries to create a unique genre.
Then, in Manhattan, Patricio Lerzundi interviews the Cuban sociologist Lisandro Perez. From his professorship at John Jay College, his books, and his blog, Cuban Yorker, Lisandro analyzes the complex relations between Cuba and the United States, which are more cultural and social, as opposed to political.
Finally, we'll visit the Tribeca Film Festival, to speak with Costa Rican director Paz Fabrega. She speaks to us about her new movie, Viaje. This film, recorded in black and white, tells the story of a young couple who confront their emotions and their vision of the future, while isolated in a forest preserve.
