Andrea Sousa was profiled in the Venezuelan edition of Access DirecTV [sic] magazine, where she was also on the cover (both seen at right, click on the photo to make it larger). For more information, click here.

A trio of film shorts will be screened at the Tribeca Cinemas on Saturday, January 26, 2013, including When Bobby Met Larry (written by and starring Carlos A. González and directed by Philip Coccioletti). For more information, click here.
