Diana Rosa Pérez Legón is a film director and producer at FIVAC, International Video Art Festival in Camagüey, and also a member of the National Guild of Cuban Writers and Artists (UNEAC). She has been directing and producing documentaries, short films and video art installations since the early 1990s. Their most recent film “Quizás, quizás, quizás” documents an encounter of the musical group “Golpe Tierra” from Madison, Wisconsin with various Cuban musicians, students and bands in Camagüey, a province in inland Cuba.
