Starters: assaggi d'arte and a few words about Venezuela's civil unrest.

Updated: Jul 8, 2019


On Thursday July 6th, I had the honor to screen and discuss my work at the monumental Santa Maria Della Scala Museum in Siena, Italy thanks to the kind invitation of Siena Art Institute's Prof. Miriam Grottanelli and the generosity of my friend Donato Rossi. Santa Maria Della Scala is one of the largest museums complexes in Italy with frescoes that date back to the 14th century.

A Siena per un Assaggio d’Arte del Siena Art Institute Alex Méndez Giner, il regista ispano-americano che esplora i rapporti umani attraverso film al confine tra realtà e immaginazione


At the end of the presentation, I took the opportunity to share a few words about the current situation in Venezuela. For more than 90 days the majority of Venezuelans have been clashing against goverment armed forces, protesting the brutal dictatorship of Nicolas Maduro. Student blood has been shed in the streets and the country is in a constant state of civil unrest. We demand the step down of Maduro followed by free elections, free the political prisoners, the reestablishment of judicial independence and the restitution of the powers to the national assembly. Please help us raise awarness.
