Lazaro and the Shark: Director Interview

William Sabourin O’Reilly found inspiration in a celebration of culture against adversity in Cuba, and has developed that into the story of a man competing with an officer in support of “the revolution.” “Lazaro and The Shark- Cuba Under the Surface,” is a powerful, careful documentary/story.

In this interview, Mr. O’Reilly explores how he found his characters and how the making of this movie reflects the cinematic, artful nature of Conga as an expression that brings freedom to its’ subjects. You can follow him @SabourinWilliam on instagram and see more of his engagement with his community and follow the tour!

Watch this when you can! It isn’t totally clear where this documentary is focused but, in under 80 minutes, you’ll see a father and husband stand up to oppression in a narrative you can’t find anywhere else.
