Our first documentary —Dan Albert’s Paella/ La Paella de Daniel Albert— has been generating interest and dialogue in Spain these days. Luis Argeo accompanied the film to its Spanish debut in the Alcances Film Festival in Cádiz in 2013; on March 9, 2014, both Argeo and co-director James D. Fernández were present at a screening and discussion at the Centro Niemeyer in Avilés, and on March 18, at the Instituto Internacional in Madrid. Fernández will be discussing aspects of the documentary when he delivers his lecture “Memorias quebradas: La Guerra Civil Española entre los descendientes de emigrantes españoles en EEUU” on March 27 at Madrid’s Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas.
Because of this interest, we have finally gotten around to setting up an autonomous web page for the Dan Albert Project; this wordpress page will eventually include copious background information on the subject of the film itself, as well as press clippings and teaching tools for educators who would like to use the film in their classes. We are delighted to report that the following colleges and universities, among others, have ordered the DVD for their libraries: Boston University; Clemson; Oberlin; Princeton; Rollins; University of California, Davis; University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign; Sam Houston State; U Mass, Boston;
