The Screenings Over the next few days Pablo and I did a series of screenings in Santa Rosa. I did another few Q&As, we screened films for students, we screened films for the government and I did a short interview with the Mayor.
The screenings went really well. It was refreshing to see that the town of Santa Rosa took them very serious and is committed to improving the environment. As Carlos Mario Rojas, the Mayor of Santa Rosa, told me "I think the festival is a great idea. It makes us do a reflection about our community."
Once again I was very impressed with Pablo and Jhonda's hard work. It really paid off.
