    Hi Gaby,
    Great to meet you at NALIP. I thought Danzak was beautiful. The story of a daughter protecting and preserving her father’s art (spirit) was deeply touching and the cinematography was gorgeous. Please keep in touch.

    Hi Gaby,

    We met at Villa Oxygene, just outside of Cannes. I’m with the Principality Group which organised the events there. Would you believe I can’t find your business card! It was lovely to have met you, and it would be nice to stay in touch. Congratulations on your film!

    Hope to hear from you.

    Hola Gaby,
    Me encantaría ver la película Danzak. Enseño el cuento, entre otros de Arguedas, en mis clases en la universidad, y me interesa personalmente ya que adoro y admiro a Perú y el Cuzco. Lo presentaste alguna vez en el área de Boston?
    Cómo lo puedo conseguir?
    Un saludo cordial,

    Gaby, felicitaciones desde Washington DC, ojala vuelvan a venir, porque estaba en Peru el año pasado. Los pasajes que he visto me encantaron. Estoy en el proceso de escribir un cuento de la Danza de Tijeras y tu video me ha siod muy util. Te felicito por lo lejos que has llegado. Enviame tus notas de prensa para publicarte en Encanto de Gente.com y chequea este web de escritores latinoamericanos nabuart.com

    Hola supe por un reportaje del cortometraje DANZAK, tengo amigos brasileños que vieron el cortometraje y supimos que habia ganado en CANNES. Ya que en Perú este tipo de arte no es difundido quisiera saber como podria hacer para conseguirlo, pues sólo vi la parte del inicio en que la niña pide que le cuenten una historia. Y quedamos sorprendidos con el inicio.

    Felicitaciones por este logro que lamentablemente en el Perú no se difunde.
