Charles Chaplin’s granddaughter is in Cuba for film festival
Charles Chaplin's granddaughter, Oona Chaplin, is in Cuba for the opening of the festival that bears the name of her grandfather, whom she described as a great revolutionary. He would have enjoyed coming to laugh with you today, said the actress; he not only revolutionized the cinema, but also the sensitivity of the human being, knocking down all the walls that might separate us through his films.
At the opening of the festival, the restored copy of the film The Gold Rush (1925) was screened for the first time in Cuba. According to Luciano Castillo, director of the Cinematheque of Cuba, that film turned 90 on June 26 and it was the pretext for these activities as a tribute to the artist.
