Awards for Cuban Film

The Cuban filmmaker Fernando Pérez was awarded the Colón de Plata or Silver Columbus Prize as best artistic director with his movie José Martí: El Ojo del Canario (José Martí: the Eye of the Canary) at the famous 36 Iberoamerican Film Festival in Huelva, Spain.

This Cuban-Spanish coproduction also received a similar award in the category of best photography, presented to 2010 Cuban National Film Prize Winner Raúl Pérez Ureta for his work in the movie, to which he contributes an exquisite careful image with a highly aesthetic poetic value.

The Cuban film covers the teenaged life of Cuban writer and National Hero José Martí, when an important part of his personality was shaped. In the movie, Pérez shows a living and human Martí in the middle of the contradictions of the time when the island was struggling for its independence from Spanish colonial rule.
