The first film by director Eduardo del LlanoVinci– will be premiered on January 13. The movie by the screenwriter of La vida es silbar (Life is Wistling) tells the story of young Leonardo, the painter of La Gioconda, to make a reflection on arts and its inerasable trace on human beings. The director only uses four actors, a single location and paintings by Cuban artist Roberto Fabelo.

February will bring the movie Verde Verde to the island’s theaters, the most recent feature film by 2006 National Film Award laureate, Enrique Pineda Barnet.  The Director of La bella del Alhambra or The Beauty of Alambra uses works of art by Rocío García to sew the threads of a seduction game whose protagonists are Héctor Noas and Carlos Miguel Caballero.

Also on the waiting list for its premier are Juan de los Muertos or Juan of the Dead, by Alejandro Brugués, who took home, among zombies and laughs, the Audience’s Coral Award at the recently concluded New Latin American Film Festival in Havana, and La piscina (The Swimming Pool), by Carlos Machado, which won the award by the Cuban Artists and Writers Association’s Radio, Film and TV.

The screening of the film Y sin embargo se mueve or And it still moves, by renowned Cuban TV and video director , Rudy Mora is also expected this year. In it, Mora takes to the screen a celebrated playwright by the Cuban children’s theater ensemble La Colmenita.  So is the premier of the musical Irremediablemente Juntos (Hopelessly Together) by Jorge Luis Sánchez who tells how love can win over racial and social prejudice obstructing it.
