Havana, Sep 19 (Prensa Latina) The Cuban Cinemateca will exhibit from September 19 to 23 a Greek film exhibition to promote here some of the best works of that filmography, according to its organizers.
The Greek ambassador to Cuba, Stella Bezirtzoglou, the main promoter of the project, has assured that in her country the cinema of the island has authentic fans and Cuban audiovisuals are appreciated every year in different cities.
However, Greek films have not been presented in Cuba for years, said the official who, in order to change that reality, gathered the present exhibition with seven fiction feature films, a documentary and a short film.
The cycle will be inaugurated tomorrow with the screening in Cinema 23 and 12 of the film The Greek (2007), by director Yannis Smaragdis, a biographical approach to the life of the painter whose very personal style had a profound impact on people at the end of the Renaissance.
The work is the most expensive in the history of Greek cinema and used Vangelis' musical score.
The exhibition will also show the film that, according to specialists, represents the birth of a Golden Age of Greek cinema, Stella (1955), by Mihalis Kakogiannis, and the director Theo Angelopoulos Eternity and a Day, winner of the Palme d'Or at the 1998 Cannes Film Festival.
