Such a comfort being in a editing room with the Frutos brothers, the great Javi Horcajada as post supervisor and the whole crew of Elamedia getting involved in. From the organisation p.o.v we had to deal with wide mixture of formats and materials –that eventually became a distinct label of the film. Lots of archives and interviews moulded by Beatriz, Nerea, Javi Frutos and Antonio Frutos -improving the film little by little. Talking about the harsh life artists have in Cuba nowadays. I also had the pleasure of sharing some music session in the editing room along the great Alean Imbert and Yotuel –while they tested some music along the editors. I also want to give big thanks to the great Eva Martos, who recommended me and gave me the luck of working in this project (L)
