MEXICAN SUITCASE IS BACK TODAY AT THE IFC!!!

HI Everyone, Please let people know that the Mexican Suitcase was not washed away by Hurricane Irene! We screened twice today in NY and will all week long.. So if you missed it this weekend,  please come to one of our screenings during the week. It looks beautiful - the and when you think Claudio Rocha shot all this on a Canon 5D still camera its phenomenal. I watched it on Friday night and cant get over the quality. Enclosed here is a still photograph  from our filming. Taken in Veracruz of the statue honoring all the Spanish exiles who arrived in Veracruz in 1939. Thanks to all of you, to all  our great supporters who rallied around us today... to take us toward $6000. Please continue to spread the word... you are the best.... MIL GRACIAS!  THANKS  Trisha.
