Episode Details

We start this episode in the barrio, in Manhattan to learn about the work of the non-profit foundation "El Taller." Its founder and artistic director, Bernardo Palombo, talks about its different cultural and artistic programs which seek to broaden the horizon of the new immigrants as well as create a modern sense of community.

We then go to Washington Heights to New York's Dominican Film Festival. There we talk to the Dominican director Alejandro Andújar about his award-winning film, "The Watchman," along Héctor Haníbal, the lead actor, and we talk about the inspiration for his work as well as the film's production process.
 
Then, in Queens, Patricio Lerzundi interviews Carlos Villegas, who since his adolescence in Colombia felt curious about studying the production process of suits that would lead him to create the Excalibur suit in New York. This and other inventions led Carlos to write "Archetype of the modern man."

We conclude in Midtown, where we meet Californian filmmaker Daresha Kyi. She talks about her documentary, "Chavela," which won second place in the Berlin Film Festival. She also talks about how her Mexican friends led her to know the personality of Chavela Vargas and how easy it was for her to decide to co-direct this project.
