Arts & Diversity to create community

Eve A. Ma (Eva Ma), PRODUCTORA – DIRECTORA

Eve A. Ma (Eva Ma), como mucho de los cineastas independientes, es por la mayoría autodidáctica. Al principio, se interesaba en el cine porque, en una carrera anterior, se encontraba produciendo un programa de entrevistas para una organización sin ánimo de lucro que fueron proyectados por la televisión. Cuando terminó este trabajo, decidé seguir trabajando en televisión y cine.

Hoy en día, su obra gana premios nacionales e internacionales y se les han presentado en unos ocho países. Además, le han emitido por la red nacional educativa en los EE.UU. tan como en canales televisivos en España. Una cosa que se destaca en su obra es que por la mayoría, se centra en las culturas diversas. Como Ma ha viajado a más de 20 países y habla tres o cuatro idiomas, eso no se ve muy extraña. Además, mucho de sus videos son en español tan como en inglés.

Antonio de la Malena, DIRECTOR ASSOCIADO

Antonio de la Malena joined us in 2012 as our principal associate in Spain. A professional flamenco singer (cantaor) since childhood, his interest in film comes out of his extensive experience with stage productions, for which he has acted as artistic director as well as principal cantaor in countless productions, most often those associated with the dancer María del Mar Moreno.

Malena's experimental short film, Entre Silencio y Misterio, premiered in the Festival de Cortometrajes de Jerez, in Spain, in 2011. Since that time, he has acted as assistant to the producer-director in several of Palomino Production's works. He also starred in Ma's feature-length drama, Domino: Caught in the Crisis. Currently, he serves as associate director for Flamenco: the Land Is Still Fertile. In addition, he helps out in other capacities on the film including narrator, and assistant to the producer; and he is one of the documentary's several featured singers.

Richard R. Lee, AYDANTE a la DIRECTORA

Richard R. Lee was assistant director and director of photography for a substantial part of Ma's series about world music and dance, a series which includes Of Beauty & Deities: Music & Dance of India, A Zest for Life: Afro-Peruvian Rhythms, Pearls from the Sea: Music & Dance of Tahiti, and several other documentaries. Episodes from this series, shot several years ago, have won a number of prizes in film festivals and have appeared on individual PBS stations from Washington, D.C. to California.

For the past 25 years, Lee has also worked as programmer and in technical aspects of several television stations in the greater San Francisco Bay Area including KTVU, KRCB and KFCB. He is the creator and proud producer ( plus editor and often host ) of a television series Sidewalks Entertainment and, in addition, is currently senior production member and on-air programmer for KCRT-TV, the cable station of the City of Richmond, California.
