Pineda Barnet declared at the time that the movie “is a tribute to those who have made and still make possible our national theatre, from the founders of Cuban theatre.”
Cuban cinema celebrated the appearance on the big screen of this movie with the special presentation of the movie and the premiere of the documentary Canción de Rachel by Carlos Barba, in the Chaplin cinema.
There were its producer, accompanied by actress Beatriz Valdés, who gave life to the vedette Rachel, the production team and guests from Cuban culture.
