A note today from Maria: My film REBEL, about a Cuban Confederate soldier turned Union spy, got 42 million impressions in one month! In NYC this week at the LATISM (LATINOS IN SOCIAL MEDIA) conference at the Waldorf I'm speaking in "STORIES THAT CHANGE OUR WORLD" panel Saturday, September 21 • 10:00am - 11:00am.
