Victor Alvarez & "One Among Thousands"
March 14, 2013
Last night on KFAI’s Radio Pocho, Miguel Vargas talked with the star of a film that will be shown tonight in Minneapolis as part of the 4th annual Cuban Film Festival. Victor Alvarez is a musician based now in Santa Fe – back in the 1960’s he was one of the children from the so-called “Operation Peter Pan”, a CIA project that removed over 14 thousand children from Cuba and re-settled them in Miami away from their families and friends. Victor Alvarez returned to Cuba for the first time in 43 years with a film crew trailing him. He told Miguel about the experience of going back and performs his rendition of "La Negra Tomasa".
Victor Alvarez, along with Anya Actenberg of the Cuban Film Festival, on now through March 28th, talking about tonight’s feature – “One Among Thousands” at the St. Anthony Main Theatre at 7pm.
