A sample of the photographer and filmmaker Roberto Chile "Images of everyday Afro-Cuban" opened in New York under the auspices of the embassies of Venezuela and Cuba in the United States.
The idea came from the exposure of African Descent, consisting of 40 black and white photos, presented in September in the Photo Library of Cuba and that since October 20 is displayed in the Havana municipality of Guanabacoa.
Carol Delgado, Consul General of Venezuela in the U.S. city said it is a work that transforms not only the history of art. Also transmutes the whole adventure of man.
For many years Roberto Chile has entered the world of citizenship in the Caribbean country, which now tried to seize his camera.
Participant in the journey of the U.S. Colmenita, the art curator also recalled that his photographs would honor the International Year of African descent, as stated by the 2011 UNESCO, United Nations Organization for Education, Science and Culture.
Chile recognized that Cuba received an enormous legacy of Africa and his photo essay is just "a song to our spirituality and multicultural."
The author provided a natural and diverse visual approach, in which men and women appear like living in your environment.
To fulfill his plan to the prominent filmmaker spent more than four years frequenting Guanabacoa, specifically the neighborhood of La Hata. Hence came his most recent documentary I'm Tata Nganga.
Roberto Chile is possessed of an extensive film work, especially linked to Cuban leader Fidel Castro.
The ceremony was attended by the ambassadors in Caracas and Havana to the United Nations, Jorge Valero and Pedro Nunez, respectively, along with performances by vocal groups and popular and folk music.
