Join us  at Locust Projects for a screening of “The Strongest Man” followed by a Q&A with the film’s writer-director Kenny Riches & actor Rob Lorie (aka the artist Meatball whose studio is in our neighbor!) There will be cocktails by The Real Havana Club, special thanks to Chat Chow and Shaun.b!

"The Strongest Man" from 2015 (1 hour, 39 minutes) is a Miami-centric comedy about an anxiety-ridden Cuban man, who fancies himself the strongest man in the world. In a quest to recover his most beloved possession, a stolen bicycle, he finds and loses so much more. By writer-director Kenny Riches (Must Come Down). Note the other Miami notable artist, Cara Despain as production designer.
