Cuba's Paloma Project Increasing Importance
The Palomas Project, headed by Cuban filmmaker Lizett Vila, has a well deserved reputation in Cuba.
Though many people and institutions take part in the activities and education initiatives implemented by the program, Vila is its heart and soul.
Her passion and expertise have given the project a distinctive spirit, achieving excellent results.
Founded in 2002, the program is aimed at spreading peace culture and promoting new life styles, based on the believe that all human beings have the same rights.
The program targets those groups that have somehow fallen behind in the process of development of the Cuban society.
The program includes the production of several documentary films such as Una mujer sin rostro; Contra el silencio una mujer, La deseada justicia; the organization of photo, painting and ceramics exhibitions; and the creation of help groups for people concern with obesity, breast cancer, prostate diseases and violence.
As part of the activities of the Palomas Project, a photo exhibition has just been inaugurated at the National Museum of Fine Arts with the title Las cubanas son las barbies del Eden, by American photographer Jacqueline Hayden and Lizett Vila.
