Main Cuban Actress of the film La Bella de la Alhambra, Juror at Mar del Plata
Cuban Actress Beatriz Valdes is participating as juror at this year’s Latin American competition at the Mar del Plata international Movie Festival, held in the Argentinean homonymous tourist resort.
Valdes, based in Venezuela, has spent the last 30 plus years working in cinema, television and theatre. She was contacted by the Cuban Film Institute ICAIC on behalf of the organizers of the Mar del Plata Festival, and decided to take some time off
her present engagement in a successful theatre production in Venezuela to attend the Festival as juror.
Speaking about her feelings for Cuba and Venezuela, Valdes said that Cuba is her trunk; whereas Venezuela, her branches.
From Argentina, Beatriz Valdes would be traveling to Havana to take part in the celebrations for the 20th anniversary of the premier of the film "La Bella de la Alhambra¨, which was pivotal for her career.
La Bella de la Alhambra still enjoys a great acceptance among Cubans and this film is regarded as one of the best from the whole Cuban productions from all times.
