Filmmaker Rodrigo Balseca documents Visual Clave

Here are some great shots New York-based filmmaker Rodrigo Balseca took at the Visual Clave show and opening at the Student Union Art Gallery. He's working, along with a crew of dedicated filmmakers, on a really exciting documentary about "Mr. Salsa" - Izzy Sanabria. Rodrigo came up with two of his crew members and filmed the opening, interviewing artist Charlie Rosario and the performance of Jesús Pagan Y Conjunto Barrio. Charlie Rosario worked with Izzy, and Izzy loaned a number of amazing original artworks - not only from his own hand, but also pieces by people who worked with him, Jorge Vargas and Walter Velez. Rodrigo brings a special eye to the proceedings, taking the images to another level. Enjoy!
