going back to school to cuba one last time. It’s weird. Time has passed so slow and so fast at the same time. So much as changed. I’m such a different person and yet the same. I have passed through so much and so much has passed through me.
I can’t wait to live these last seven months and to have the privilege of going back in the future when I want to. It’s a place like no other cuba and I hope that film school can continue to be what it has been for so many years.
So, goodbye fast internet for a while.
I’ll pop up every now and then. Can’t resist my tumblr. I’ll miss it.
"Life is going to present to you a series of transformations. And the point of education should be to transform you. To teach you how to be transformed so you can ride the waves as they come. But today, the point of education is not education. It’s accreditation. The more accreditation you have, the more money you make. That’s the instrumental logic of neoliberalism. And this instrumental logic comes wrapped in an envelope of fear. And my Ivy League, my MIT students are the same. All I feel coming off of my students is fear. That if you slip up in school, if you get one bad grade, if you make one fucking mistake, the great train of wealth will leave you behind. And that’s the logic of accreditation. If you’re at Yale, you’re in the smartest 1% in the world. […] And the brightest students in the world are learning in fear. I feel it rolling off of you in waves. But you can’t learn when you’re afraid. You cannot be transformed when you are afraid."
