The Cuban filmmaker Tomás Piard now faces ideological pressure in his work for having interviewed me in his most recent documentary “TROCADERO 162, LOWER,” filmed last November for UNEAC, its producer. The debut of the film planned for 19 December 2010 (the 100th birthday of the Cuban writer José Lezama Lima, the subject of the film) is postponed.
This coming week Tomás Piard will face a meeting to “analyze” the “situation” created by my interview and also the sequestering of the original film and censorship of it in the name of the Abel Prieto, Minister of Culture.
All those in charge are cowards! Petty mercenaries (assassins who kill beauty and truth for wages). Look what they do with this honest and lonely man…!
SOLIDARITY WITH TOMAS PIARD, CUBANS! A CREATOR WHOSE SOLE PURPOSE WAS TO OPEN THE LUNGS TO BREATH IN THE CLAUSTROPHOBIC REPRESSIVE ATMOSPHERE INTO WHICH OUR BUREAUCRATS OF THE 21ST CENTURY HAVE CONVERTED THE CULTURE IN THE TIME OF THE REVOLUTION!
