The Tourist, The Voyeur

@ VOL 5 ON FEB 19, 2016

“She is the mother of us, all of us, alive or dead.”

In The Tourist, The Voyeur from Pechakucha Night Ellensburg’s 5th volume, presenter  Xavier Cavazos poetically introduces us, the voyeur, the tourist, to the people, the streets, the grandmothers of Havana.  In a mesmerizing rhythm, we are drawn into unknown territory.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Tuesday, April 26th, 2016.
