Con el Pin Pin Pin de San Agustin

by Alejandra Espasande Bouza

What visual referents do you find when you visit the Chinatown area in L.A.? This is my perspective. A two minute documentary sketch recorded on Oct. 11, 2009.

It was made for a film class taught by the great Marina Goldovskaya. I employed a very unique music piece. A mixture of Cuban Chinese trumpet "corneta" and drums, rooted in the carnivals celebrated in the city of Santiago de Cuba (Cuba). This theme is titled "Con su Pin Pin Pin,"performed by the Comparsa San Agustin. Enjoy!
