Benicio Del Toro Directs in Cuba: Watch Hutcherson and Del Toro talk about shooting Seven Days in Havana
Puerto Rican actor-turned-director Benicio Del Toro recently screened his latest film project in Cuba, Seven Days in Havana, a French-Spanish production made up of seven shorts. Del Toro directed the first short entitled To Yuma (The American), a story that follows a young American actor (Hunger Games’ Josh Hutcherson) trying to break into the film industry who travels to Cuba for a film festival.
While promoting the film during a press conference in Havana, Del Toro said the experience was so rewarding he plans to continue directing.
“To see the motivation of all the artists, working 14 hours a day, to see the confidence they had in me, the collaboration between everything, is something very special. It’s an experience that motivates me to dream of trying it again,” said Del Toro.
