A 57 minutes program directed by Cecilia Domeyko and supported by grants from the Ford Foundation and the Miranda Foundation of Mexico, this beautifully shot one-hour educational program in Spanish outlines how people can set up foundations and non-profit organizations to support the arts. Filled with a tremendous range of art -- Cuban street music, an all-woman orchestra performing new Cuban compositions in a beautiful basilica, sculptors, ceramacists, painters, classical and modern dancers, this lively program was shot under the most difficult circumstances, yet is emerging not only as a wonderful guide to funding the arts, but a work of art in its own right.
