My life after UCLA Grad School -- MFA in Film.

Grad student Midgia Chinea's film 'anonymous (street meat)' selected for Cannes Short Film festival

In mid May 2011, I flew to Nice and stayed at the Western Madrid hotel -- this is because I couldn't find any accommodations in Cannes.  The trip was nice and I met some very nice people, including a great Algerian family who invited me to a wonderful dinner at their home.  However, because of my busy UCLA schedule, I could not stay in touch with anyone --  all I have is pictures,  I took a couple of side trips while there -- to Monte Carlo, Eze and Frejus -- although I had been there before I found the experience totally absorbing and beautiful.  Afterward, my film was selected to a number of film festivals including the Student Film Festival in St. Petersburg, Russia -- I wish I had been able to attend.

 

However, it was AFTER I got back that things changed when people at UCLA started to act totally weird with me and kept taking down any other festival announcements from the UCLA TFT Facebook page.  I have never bragged about any of my accomplishments in my life, but I was accused of being a self-promoter.  My situation was really awful at school.  All in all, Cannes was great, but not my experiences here and the lack of support were mystifying.

Tales of TERROR - Grad School

“If any ambitious man have a fancy to revolutionize at one effort the universal world of human thought, human opinion, and human sentiment, the opportunity is his own — the road to immortal renown lies straight, open, and unencumbered before him. All that he has to do is to write and publish a very little book. Its title should be simple — a few plain words — "My Heart Laid Bare." But — this little book must be true to its title.” Poe, Edgar Allan. Marginalia. 1844.p
