"I truly enjoyed SOY ANDINA. You did a great job of balancing both stories and making us care not only for Cynthia and Neli, but for our culture. The film also reminded that as a child I used to dance marinera and zamacueca at every school pageant. Great memories indeed. Gracias!"
- Dante Alencastre, filmmaker/activist
"I was bowled over by SOY ANDINA. A brilliantly-told story that immersed you in the diversity of Peruvian culture through its dance and music. It was great to see Cynthia grow and evolve beyond a dancer as she embraced her roots, especially with the guidance of her mentor, Nelida....You are a sensitive filmmaker who celebrates other cultures and infects us with the genuine passion you hold for it and its people. You're an absolute gem in the Latino and filming community.... You have inspired me to listen to Afro-Peruvian music today!
I spoke to Cynthia afterwards (that was the icing on the cake to have her modern dance performance follow the film as the true evolution of her dance [not to speak of the Peruvian dance company perform preceding your film]) and I asked to interview her for a series I am doing highlighting educated, professional Latinas who inspire and aspire for a Hispanic Heritage campaign I am producing entitled, WISE LATINA"

en mi querido Panama. Hasta los bocadillos estuvieron estupendo al

Your film is...WONDERFUL!! It's
moving and informative and it gave me wanderlust to travel and
explore. You really did something special!

powers, and a huge inspiration"
