Javier Mariscal and Fernando Trueba | Chico y Rita

Cuba, 1948. Chico is a young piano player with big dreams. Rita is a beautiful singer with an extraordinary voice. Music and romantic desire unites them, but their journey - in the tradition of the Latin ballad, the bolero - brings heartache and torment. From Havana to New York, Paris, Hollywood and Las Vegas, two passionate individuals battle impossible odds to unite in music and love.

Directed by Javier Mariscal and Fernando Trueba. I met Javier in Melbourne at the AGIdeas conference earlier this year where he presented Chico y Rita animation for the first time. I can't wait to see it! Chico y Rita premiere was on the 19th November.
