I will go further in love with Cuba, says Tom Weston
Tom Weston was seduced by Cuba even without having visited it, so when Rigoberto Lopez proposed him to release here his documentary film The winds that blows within the Travelling Caribbean Film Showcase, the US filmmaker, director of photography and cameraman did not hesitate to accept.
Inspired by the lives of the inhabitants of the small Caribbean island of Bequia and its ancient custom of whaling, the film will open this seventh edition, which gathers and promotes films made about and in the region.
The 26 productions will begin to be screened since Thursday 11 in Havana and The wind that blows will be among the first to be seen at Infanta cinema along with Deal with it, by Shamira Raphaela.
Delighted with the inner-city scenes and the old American cars, Weston was astonished when knowing that Law and order and The Blacklist were avidly followed by Cuban viewers, and became interested in the “weekly package”, where film and series are normally distributed.
"It's very clever what you have done, I congratulate you," he smiled as he refused to reveal what will happen next season with the most wanted Raymond Reddington and even made jokes with the possibility that Elizabeth Keen was not his daughter.
