The festival’s artistic director, actress Aïda Ballmann, recalls that in this new edition Insularia is dedicated to independent Cuban cinema. In 2022 the show began its journey on the island of El Hierro at the beginning of October, from where it has already traveled La Graciosa and Tenerife, scheduled to pass through ten different venues of the rest of the eight islands of the Archipelago until the end of November.

The programme in Lanzarote will start every day at 8 pm and will be the film “Dos Islas” (2017), directed by the Cuban filmmaker, Adriana Castellanos, which will open the show tomorrow Friday, along with: “Camionero”, by Sebastián Miló (2011); “Los Puros”,by Carla Valdés León (2021); “Última canción de Mayaan”, by Lisandra López Fabé (2021) and “Los Bañistas” (2010) Carlos Lechuga

Finally, the public will be able to enjoy on Sunday 6, a total of seven works: “Oda a la Piña” by Laimir Fano (2008); “El Niño de Goma” by Marcos Díaz Sosa (2021); “Pizza de Jamón” by Carlos Melián (2012); “Abecé” by Diana Montero (2013); “Utopía” by Arturo Infante (2004); “Los Amantes” by Alán González (2018) and “La Luna en el Jardín” by Adonae Lima, Yamelí Cruz (2012).

Insularia is carried out thanks to the sponsorship of the Canary Islands Government through the public company PROMOTUR, Canary Tourism and the REACT funds of the European Union, as well as the collaboration of the ten municipalities headquarters of the call.

New independent Cuban cinema.

As Aïda Ballmann explained, this new edition of “Insularia. Islas en Red” is celebrated with an exhibition dedicated to independent cinema made in Cuba by directors/directors who create their works on the formal margins, but far from the official Cuban industry.

Many of the works that are projected, were the first works of filmmakers that today are consecrated/ as internationally. Insularia pays tribute to these creators/ as, while providing the opportunity to the public of the Canary Islands to enjoy for the first time in the islands, these Cuban independent short films.
