The full-length film entitled ´Irremediablemente juntos´ is the second one of the Cuban filmmaker Jorge Luis Sánchez. The new cinematographic proposal was premiered since August 2nd in the main movie theaters nationwide. The film’s plot is based on the play entitled ´Pogolotti-Miramar´ by Alexis Vázquez.
The public knows Jorge Luis Sánchez´s work through his film entitled´El Benny´ that was selected for the Oscar nomination. Therefore, the ´Irremediablemente juntos´film constitutes Jorge Luis Sánchez´s return to the fictional film given that it had been six years since he had not had the opportunity to film.
´The movie is like a mechanism that is being constantly developed to the extent that when one delays the shooting process, then it fails. We, the directors, really feel it when we return to the filming set. Besides, I have a great expectation with this film taking into consideration that I would like to know what it is going to happens to the film while it is being premiered as there are many prejudices worldwide in relation to the musical movie. Then my interest or main goal was mainly to make a musical and intelligent movie that had not all the frivolity that is commonly part of that cinematographic genre.´ Jorge Luis Sánchez said.
The aforementioned film rescues the musical genre and its plot is featured by the conflicts that exist between the families of the characters Liz and Alexander as soon as they know that their children love each other. The theme on the racial discrimination is one of the many realities that are showed by its film-maker.
´It seems really important to me to show the different behaviors of the Cubans as they lead them to take a racial attitude in certain occasions. Hence, I show some characters like Cristina, for instance, which needs to resemble the stereotype of a white-skinned woman to be successful in her life. There is also another character that considers himself as a loser due to his skin’s color or the other character performed by Blanca Rosa Blanco who opposes her daughter’s relationship with a black-skinned man; even though, she has a relationship with a mixed-race man. All that series of attitudes are reflected in the film given that I believed that it was the best way to approach that social phenomenon without using the already classical stereotypes.´ Jorge Luis Sánchez commented.
´Apart from the music and dance, the photography is another of the defining elements in the film’s final result.´ Sánchez, who had José Manuel Riera as the photography director just like in the 2006 film entitled´El Benny, ´ stated.
´The film is all the time looking for the realism and not for the naturalism as such which are sometimes mixed. All the characters are dressed with certain colors by respecting the concept of art in the film, as well as the houses in which the scenes were filmed. I remember that he made a very unusual correction of lights in the Cuban movie given that there are some scenes that are not precisely complex one that are designed to say something, besides, there is a different treatment for the houses of the Pogolotti neighborhood in relation to the houses in Miramar taking into consideration that we are talking about the type of worlds that have a singular atmosphere in which the photography is essential.´ Jorge Luis Sánchez pointed out.
The ´Irremediablemente juntos´ film includes the performance by Ariadna Núñez and Orian Suárez in the leading roles, as well as the participation of actors and actresses Fela Jar, Monse Duany, Mireya Chapman and Blanca Rosa Blanco who talked on the intense and useful work that was carried out by all the actors before the film’s filming process in spite of their diverse backgrounds.
Likewise, the actress said that the film’s music was responsibility of singer-songwriters such as Tony Ávila, Silvio Alejandro, Fernando Becker and Eduardo Ramos. The film’s musical lyrics were adapted to the dialogues and choreographies by the National Dance Prize, Isidro Rolando Tondique.
