"Farewell to a Friend"
Fernando Bujones March 9, 1955 - November 10, 2005

Fernando Bujones, international dance icon and Artistic Director of Orlando Ballet, passed away Thursday morning, November 10th, 2005. This is a devastating loss to the dance world, but an even greater loss to all those who knew the man. Fernando's passion and energy were contagious. He inspired all those around him to be better than they ever imagined they could be, to reach beyond self imposed limitations. He gave them permission to fly, to let go and reach for the stars. His warmth and generosity of spirit endeared him to everyone who knew him. This is a man who got it right. He understood that by treating those in his world with respect and acknowledging the value of each person's unique gifts, the whole would become greater than the sum of it's parts. He understood that by contributing to and applauding each person's success, our own success is not diminished, but magnified a hundred fold. That is the foundation and premise that he built Orlando Ballet upon, a company that would be a reflection of the passion, spirit and vision of a great artist, a great leader, a great man. That is the foundation and premise that he lived his life by as well. He gave freely of his knowledge and his artistry, but his greatest gift was the gift of himself. I was privileged and honored be able to chronicle and share with the world through my writing what I saw unfold over the past five years of Fernando's journey with Orlando Ballet, and to serve Fernando as his personal representative for two and a half of those years, but my greatest honor and truest blessing was to have him as a friend.
"Fernando came to Orlando Ballet and took an average local company and made it into a world-class organization. He was an exceptional gift to the world of dance - not only as a performer but with the legacy he leaves." ...Immediate Past President of Orlando Ballet Tricia Earl
"Bujones, one of the finest male dancers of the 20th Century, leaves behind a legacy of international accomplishment in performance, choreography and teaching in addition to a world-class ballet company." www.orlandoballet.org
"The Extraordinary Journey of Fernando Bujones" is definitely a labor of love...Fernando was not only an incredible dancer and teacher but one of the most amazing human beings I've ever met. That is why I choose to write about him. I felt that his was a story that must be shared with the world. This is the same kind of motivation that Israel Rodriguez had to create his chronicle in film of Fernando the artist and the man...This is a film not to be missed...
Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel Movie critic wrote in his article reviewing the film..."Israel Rodriguez's The Extraordinary Journey of Fernando Bujones uses generous samples of the dancing of the late Orlando Ballet artistic director and interviews with his peers to remind us how special Bujones was. Landing Malcolm McDowell (who starred in Robert Altman's ballet film The Company) to give the film its triumphant narration, scoring interviews with those who raised Bujones, taught him dance, were inspired by him and loved him, Rodriguez has made a film that will open the eyes of those who didn't realize the giant who lived and worked in our midst."
