Havana.- The 500th anniversary of the Cuban capital includes, among other tributes, an exhibition of films from Quebec (Canada), with an eye to strengthening cultural relations between the two cities.
The program includes the screening of the historic film Hochelaga, Land of Souls, directed by François Girard and linked to the traditions of that territory.
Other films to be screened in Havana are Starbuck, by Kent Scott; Laurence Anyways, by Xavier Dolant; Le Mirage, by Ricardo Trogi, and the children's feature film La Guerre des Tuques, by Jean-Francois Pouliot and Francois Brisson, as well as Fake Tattoos, by Pascal Plante, which will also be presented at the Reference Center for Adolescents, where a debate on love at that age will take place.
Every year, more than 50 motion pictures from that Canadian city are exhibited in Cuba, a number of films only exceeded by France in terms of French-speaking cinema.
