What you'll do
We will take a walk through iconic sites of the history of cinema in Cuba, such as the Cuban Film Institute, the Charles Chaplin cinema and the house of the International Festival of New Latin American Cinema. We will visit a small shop where national and international cinema posters are sold, designed by Cuban artists, as well as books and magazines about the seventh art. We will drink a coffee in a cultural cinema center and a drink in a nice bar. The walk will allow us to discover the architecture and other sites of interest in one of the most famous neighborhoods of Havana, El Vedado. These sites will allow us to delve into the history of cinema in Cuba, especially after the triumph of the Cuban Revolution of 1959.
Lisandra, Hilda, Miguel & Martha
We are a group of specialists who work at the Cuban Film Institute. We are also friends. The cinema is our passion and with this experience we have the opportunity to share and exchange with other followers of the seventh art. Our team is composed of two journalists, a graphic designer and a television presenter. The work in the film industry has allowed us to delve even further into the history of cinema in Cuba, as well as to be updated on the events, activities and festivals of the cinematographic field.
