  1. Chris:

    I found this–“A chief reason I left is that I am completely disgusted with the “might makes right” approach of the USA government toward the rest of the world.

    I am also sick of the McDonald’s hamburger, gotta have it right now culture, and of seeing SUVs and huge compensator pickup trucks driving the roads with the “Support Our Troops” magnetic ribbons. They should more fairly read “Support Our Troops So I Can Continue to Afford to Drive My Gas Hog.”–and I totally agree.

    Que tu vayas bien, Amigo.

  2. Also, I never climbed Pico de Orizaba, but I stared at it LONG and HARD from Puebla, many, many years ago, and dreamed of roaming across its snow swept summit.

    Vivan los espiritos de Qetzalcoatl!

    Oh, and ONE MORE THING. It’s the Land of The Fee and the Home of The Blame!!!!!!!!11

  3. Hey RR,
    Igualmente senor.

    Thanks for looking in and leaving a comment. Did you watch the “Stick a Yellow Ribbon on That SUV” video. If not you can find it down the page a ways.

    I haven’t yet trekked the snowfields of Pico de Orizaba either. One of these Sundays I will make the trip and and provide a report.

  4. I’m posting this update to share a rewarding benefit from our theatrical journey with LOVE & SUICIDE, the movie shot on location in Havana, Cuba. After eight months in commercial theatres, with ten weeks screening in Miami, FL and finishing this November with a 450 people premiere in Los Angeles. It seems we have impacted the U.S. Embargo on Cuba. The Cuban Evolution is here.

    One of our highlights was screening in Miami Florida with the AMC Theatres Select program. We grew up to five theatres in Miami and out grossed many studio films at the box office.

    But the biggest reward was the community that received us in Miami. Though the film is not political, you can’t help but see the real life results of both Cuba’s and America’s failed 47 years of politics. Almost all pro-embargo, anti-embargo and neutral viewers of the film agreed, it’s time to lift the embargo on Cuba. The embargo simply has not worked in 47 years.

    I know some U.S. politicians have seen the movie. They have been affected deeply. Especially after seeing the reality in Cuba with their own eyes. When you see real images with real people, it’s hard to avoid the duplicity of the outdated embargo.

    Thank God some of these pro-embargo politicians are now preparing to abolish the embargo in 2007. We already know they don’t want the embargo. What we don’t know is which “former” pro-embargo politician will stand up first. The race is on to see which one has the courage to go public first.

    Thank you for being part of “The Cuban Evolution.” Luis Moro, Filmmaker.
