BRAZILIAN FILM FESTIVAL OF MIAMI 2017


TUE, SEPT 19, 7p:

THE CAT FROM HAVANA (O GATO DE HAVANA)

Director: Dacio Malta

Documentary, 88’, 2016, Brazil/Cuba


Gato Tuerto is Cuba's most iconic cabaret. Since it first opened its doors 55 years ago, it remains a refuge for Havana's cultured bohemian circles. In its small stage, some of the country's most important musicians, such as Omara Portuondo, Elena Burke, Pablo Milanés, César Portillo de la Luz and Chucho Valdés, have performed. It also served as a scenario for the world's longest bolero session, as recorded on the Guiness Book of Records. The documentary tells the story of cabaret; its inception, creators, artists and famous patrons, like Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Julio Cortázar.
