The Cuban institute of Arts and Cinematographic Industry (ICAIC) have two outstanding short-film proposals to be premiered during the current month of October at the main movie theatres of the Cuban capital city
One of them, it the short film entitled ´La Luna en el jardín by young filmmakers Yemelí Cruz and Adanoe Lima which is inspired on the novel entitled ´Jardín´by the unforgettable Cuban writer Dulce María Loynaz and the other one entitled ´El Camarón Encantado´ with the script and direction by the also young filmmaker Olivia Cordovés.
The short film entitled ´La Luna en el jardín´ is a highly-refined one where the nostalgia, dreams, hopes and hopelessness feelings are united with the beautiful sound by Alejandro García Caturla that offers us a great poetic message which constitutes a positive merit for all the staff who worked in its production, especially for Yemelí and Adanoe.
Regarding the Él Camarón Encantado´short film, her producer preferred the context of the National Ballet of Cuba with which she portrayed the role carried out by local choreographer Eduardo Blanco from Santiago de Cuba, along with other male ballet-dancer figures through their rhythm and professionalism.
In addition, this short film gives us not only a refined-artistic proposal that may be unforgettable for many people given that it shows, right at the end, the prominent historical sites from the city of Santiago de Cuba but also it may cause new and positive expectations on a subsequent short film.
The ´Él Camarón Encantado´ short film constitutes certainly the result inspired on that first publication by national hero José Martí for all the children and young people through his magazines then entitled ´la Edad de Oro´ and it is an example of its validity in terms of education, Therefore, this short film which is directed at the Cuban youth so that they may treasure dreams, hopes while continuing their path.
