A broken-hearted filmmaker navigates an unfamiliar city, an international art fair and his own emotional turmoil in this dark, playful and unexpectedly comedic documentary. At once irreverent and heartfelt, "Leave the Bus Through the Broken Window" is directed by Andrew Hevia and edited by Carlos Rivera.
The film was supported by a Fulbright U.S. Student Research Fellowship and is a 2017 participant in the IFP Filmmaker Labs. To read an interview about the project and the Fulbright program, click here.
Andrew Hevia (Director) hails from Miami, Florida. His previous documentary work includes "Rising Tide: A Story of Miami Artists," "Sawgrass City" and "A Short Film about Edson Jean." He co-produced the groundbreaking, three time Academy Award winning film "Moonlight" and is a founder of Borscht Corp, the non-profit film collective behind the Borscht Film Festival, which was called "the weirdest film festival on the planet" by Indiewire. He graduated from the Florida State University Film School and Fordham University's Gabelli School of Business.
Carlos David Rivera (Editor) is a Cuban-American filmmaker also from Miami. He won a Daytime Emmy Award for his work on "Laverne Cox Presents: The T Word," a television documentary about trans youth, and was nominated for a Primetime Emmy in the “outstanding picture editing” category for his work on Project Runway All Stars. Carlos loves exceptionally long hikes in the Sierra Mountains, the films of Werner Herzog, and arguing cinema over a bottle (or two) of wine.
