NYFA puts the spotlight on Direk Eileen Cabiling in The 20/20 series
Liz Henlein, Creative Director of Filmmaking and Cinematography at the New York Film Academy (NYFA), interviewed Direk Eileen Cabiling last January 13, 2021, for NYFA’s The 20/20 Series. They were joined by NYFA faculty, staff, and students, as well as special guests from all over the globe.
Hinlein created the virtual pop-up event, to allow us to have intimate conversations with creative visionaries, and talk about their craft and artistry.
NYFA thanked Direk Eileen for discussing Basurero with their global community, and for sharing what it means to be an activist filmmaker.
