Tribeca Film Festival

Last week, by the indication of Charly Braun, I went to see “Santiago” – a documentary by Joao Moreira Salles about his buttler.Fantastic story and character. We were honored by Joao’s presence at the screening for the Q&A session. Delicate, centered, and soft spoken… Also saw Charly’s short film the same day “You Can’t Take It With You” – a story of a boy who finds out that the world is going to end from a VCR that sees into the future. Entertaining and cute film – well executed and with great actors… congratulations Charly!!

I helped out with teaching them how to program the robots and helped out with the construction of their ideas. A great experience that impressed me in so far as how fast the kids learn and absorb.
