The films "Meñique" by Ernesto Padrón and "Vestido de Novia" by Marilyn Solaya, were the productions selected by the Cuban Institute of Cinematographic Art and Industry to boost Cuba in the name of Ariel and Goya awards respectively.
The selection committee chose "Meñique" because it has a good technical bill and is an interesting adaptation to the cinema on a versioned story by José Martí, the Cuban Apostle.
The choice of "Vestido de Novia", on the other hand, was due to its condition of debut addressing sensitively an issue until now very little discussed in the national cinema, the transgendered, transvestism, hidden homosexuality and tolerance to the diversity of sexual preferences.
