It includes also a fifth documentary by Gutiérrez Aragón himself entitled ´Música para vivir’, which is based on his opinion that in Cuba ‘music is not just that, but a way of life and of understanding the world.’
The first three documentaries of the series, produced jointly by Spain’s Antillana de Comunicación, TVE and the Cuban Film Institute (ICAIC), will be screened here in Havana in the framework of the 30th New Latin American Film Festival.
The documentary by Gutierrez Aragón features dancers of the Cuban company Santa Amalia, formed by a group of friends with a 60 year-long history of spontaneous get-togethers to dance jazz music.
The Spanish filmmaker shot his documentary last February here in Havana in collaboration with pianist Chucho Valdés and singer song-writer Pablo Milanés.
