Mr. Felipe Tewes (Venezuelan / Manager, Film Programming at HBO), dear friend and longtime supporter of the Venezuelan Art Festival-New York, presents his recently produced documentary “The Needle” at DOC-NYC (New York’s Documentary Festival).
From a clandestine cosmetic clinic in his modest home in Puerto Rico, Jose Quinones deals both advice and treatment. But in spite of the tight bond he has formed with his largely LGBT clientele, Quinones decides to reach out to the estranged family that rejected him.
