Backpack Documentary Workshop in Havana, Cuba, Draws to End

HAVANA, Cuba, 15 December 2011 — Participants in the Backpack Documentary Workshop at the Advanced Institute of Art pose for a group photo at a dinner reception following our four-day event. The workshop was an extraordinary success, the last stage of which is a visit to American University by the winning team of Cuban students, who will show their short documentary on “Diversity in Cuba.” The workshop was made possible by a grant from the Reynolds Foundation. The grant was procured by Eric Hershberg, director of American University’s Center for Latin American and Latino Studies (CLALS).
