Dreamtown Fiesta featuring Chota Madre and Bombazo Dance Company and Film Preview
The public is invited to a film screening and music party on Thursday, July 18 in the Lower East Side, Manhattan benefiting Dreamtown, the first film of its kind telling the story of Ecuador’s Afro-community that has been transformed by its famous world cup soccer players, who are helping to rebuild their hometown and inspiring a new generation of players to reach for their soccer dream. The event will raise post-production funds to complete the film in time for the 2014 World Cup, and celebrate the rich culture of the African-Diaspora.
Betty Bastidas and the producing team will be present to meet guests and talk about DreamTown, which she began in 2007. Today, they are in the midst of a fundraising push to finish.
Dreamtown has been made possible through the support of individual donors and self-financing.
