NCLAFF: Cuba at the Edge -- Short films by Eduardo del Llano
Virtual event via Zoom.
The NCLAFF has selected three of Del Llano shorts from his Series titled: Who is Nicanor O'Donell?. All of the films are independent, digitally captured, produced and distributed by Eduardo del Llano in the past decade and a half. The series focuses on the daily experiences of Nicanor O'Donell (Luis Alberto García), a kind of prototypical Cuban man, who acts as a vehicle to present a satirical perspective on different aspects of contemporary Cuba. We can talk about a sort of realism in Del Llano's short films, a deep and immerse knowledge of the Cuban experience, but at the same time the capacity to move away to look at it objectively. Del Llano also represents an emergent independent cinema sector in the island; his work functions as a sort of "in-betweeness."
The director will join us on zoom from Havana to present his films and do Q&A.
