Synopsis

NY PREMIERE

Starting from the life of the filmmaker Julio García Espinosa, the documentary is a reflection on the emergence and development of Cuban contemporary cinematography, its struggles, contradictions and confrontations with dogmatic thinking that at times seems to dominate the Cuban political-cultural spectrum, the always difficult, risky and necessary relationship between officials and artists, and the close and united defense of filmmakers around their film policy.

Español
Partiendo de la vida del cineasta Julio García Espinosa, importante figura de la cultura cubana, el documental establece una reflexión sobre el surgimiento y desarrollo de la nueva cinematografía cubana, sus éxitos, luchas, y enfrentamientos con el pensamiento dogmático que por momentos parece dominar el espectro político-cultural cubano; la siempre difícil, y necesaria relación entre los funcionarios y los artistas, y la cerrada y unida defensa de los cineastas en torno a  su política cinematográfica.
