A behind-the-scenes fundraising event honors the independent film "Out of Place," a video portrait of internationally acclaimed Cuban-born photographer Abelardo Morell being completed by filmmaker Allie Humenuk. During the Castro regime, Mr. Morell and his parents fled Cuba for the US. Today, Mr. Morell still struggles with questions about assimilation, returning to Cuba and acknowledging the influence fleeing his homeland has had on him and his family. This event is an opportunity for guests to meet the artist and creators of this work. Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres served. 5:30 p.m. at Ritz-Carlton, Coconut Grove. Free admission. Donors of $5,000 or more receive limited-edition print by Mr. Morell created for this event.
