This 34 edition of the International Festival of New Latin American Cinema is getting old, but Havana keeps making of December an station to any where in Latin America and the world.
Any person, who wants to travel today to Chile in the winter of the end of the dictatorship, will go to the movies to watch No, a film by Pablo Larrain, starred by Gael García Bernal , known by films like Diario de Motocicleta, in which he played the role of Che Guevara.
Those who want to take a look at the Cuban face will look for LA Película de Ana (Ana´s movie), by director Daniel Díaz Torres. There will be viewers for Violeta se fue a los cielos (Violeta Went to Heaven), the multi awarded film by Andres Wood and La Fiebre del Ratón (The Mouse Fever), by the Brazilian Claudia Assis, and there will be some who will discovered works like Las cosas como son (Things the way they are), by the Chilean Fernando Lavanderos or la Brecha en el Silencio (The Gap in the Silence), a Venezuelan proposal of Luis Alejandro and Andres Rodriguez.
Also in the festival you can watch Irremediablemente Juntos (Hopelessly together) and Se Vende (For Sale) from (Cuba), Fecha de Caducidad (Expiration date) (Mexico), Los Salvajes (Savages) (Argentina), Choco (Colombia ), and R onia (Brazil), among others.
Today, like every day at the Havana festival, documentaries and shorts films will be, to the critical eye, much more than dressing for the main course: the feature film.
Films from the United States, Spain, Great Britain, Thailand, Poland, Germany, Deutschland, Austria, and Luxembourg will be displayed before the faces perhaps deluded, hypnotized of moviegoers.
That will be in the movies, but also you can enjoy of a seminar, for example, on What is freedom? Or a concert at the Pabellón Cuba (Cuba Pavilion) of the fusion band Interactivo, along with their guests.
The panel will be formed by Antoni Domenech (Spain), Roman de la Campa (USA), Florence Gauthier (France) and Alfredo Guevara (Cuba), but those who will go to the concert with the virtuous members of Interactivo, are to be discovered.
