Touring with the film: Director Andrew Hevia
In Leave the Bus Through the Broken Window, what starts as a traditional documentary about the Hong Kong art scene becomes an intimate and wryly comedic study of loneliness and alienation within an increasingly globalized world. Upon realizing that the film he intended to make is going to be a disaster, filmmaker Andrew Hevia turns the camera on himself while continuing to engage with Hong Kong’s art community. Shot in a ‘first person’ style and narrated by a text-to-speech robot, Leave the Bus Through the Broken Window becomes a playfully inventive and nakedly emotional self-portrait, using deadpan humor in a postmodern exploration of romance, personal trauma and culture shock like no other film before it.
Andrew Hevia (Writer, Director, Producer, Cinematographer) is a Cuban American filmmaker from Miami, Florida. His directorial debut, LEAVE THE BUS THROUGH THE BROKEN WINDOW, premiered at SXSW where it was called “the most original and fascinating documentary” of the year by Film Threat and has been featured in Filmmaker Magazine, Art Forum and the New York Times. Hevia co-produced the Academy Award winning film MOONLIGHT for director Barry Jenkins and is an original founder of Borscht Corp, the underground Miami based film collective, talent incubator and producers of the “weirdest film festival on the planet.” He is a graduate of the Florida State University Film School, Fordham University’s Gabelli School of Business and a Fulbright Research Fellow. He currently lives in Los Angeles.
