Revista Cubana Independiente "Voces" lanza su segundo número

IMG_5051Image by konsumterra via FlickrSegundo número de la Revista Cubana Independiente Voces 2 ya puede verse online en http://www.scribd.com/doc/37994974/Voces-2-Revista-Cubana-Independiente
VOLABAS EN CABALLO BLANCO EL MUNDO
Orlando Luis Pardo Lazo
CANCIONES MIERDERAS que marcaron de muerte a nuestro pobre y provinciano corazón. Baladas baladíes, por supuesto. Poemas plañideros que nuestros progenitores interpretaron mientras hacían sus labores domésticas de fin de semana o mientras hacían de noche mediocremente el amor (esa otra labor doméstica).
Música mala. Malísima. Inimitable y sin igual. Kitsch tropicaloso de alcoba. Boleros light y melodramas pop-corn de cornudos y tembas. Estrofas estrujadas con versos inolvidables, eufonías que nos acompañarán más allá del Juicio Final ante un fiscal del Estado o de Dios.
Con esa banda sonora chupamos teta y aprendimos las primeras palabras patrias del español. Hezpañol. Melodías genéticas, genésicas, geniales a pesar de su ingenuidad. Todo un background de barrios barridos bajo los berridos del bebé que fuimos y los onanismos oníricos del adolescente que envejeció sin serlo del todo nunca.
Hoy Cuba ha enmudecido a fuerza de gritos de repudio y demagogia política, pasto teatral para el vulgo: bullita de las postrimerías nada estéticas de una Revolución cuya cancionística nadie de nuevo tarareará.
Hoy somos como zombies en clave de sol sostenido mayor, el más aburrido de los acordes. Monotonía de un pentagrama que se quedó con los micrófonos en blanco. Así como nadie recuerda las amenazas apocalípticas del Premier de nuestro único Partido, tampoco ya nadie memoriza las letras del último hit de la temporada de baladas.
Borramos escenas. Deshabitamos apenas al ritmo de la resaca. Cuba como parónimo perfecto de Coda.
Y, entonces, cuando la esperanza se vaya asumiendo por fin como una enfermedad endémica, cuando sepamos que estamos solos en tanto generación y que no haremos nada que luego valga la pena pensar, entonces, cansados de darnos cabezazos contra los fantasmas suicidas y los funcionarios pragmáticos en que sin saberlo nos convertimos, cuando el brillo del día a día sea una bruma pasada por nuestras cataratas conceptuales de gente que se dejó robar el tiempo que le tocó existir, entonces, la molicie de aquella música de nuestras infancias mongólicas estará esperándonos todavía allí, como una visa para salvarnos, como un talismán contra las dictaduras de corte totalitario o democratizado, como una almohada donde recostar la nuca y pedirle perdón al amor por lo mucho que parloteamos en su nombre y por lo muy poco que lo practicamos. La cultura entera sólo tendrá sentido entonces en dos o tres frases de pacotilla que expresarán mejor que cualquier tratado lo que fuimos pero ignoramos. Endecasílabos endemoniados de los que no tenía sentido intentar la fuga, porque entre sus metáforas mefíticas, en alguna de sus mil y una almibaradas fonías (mejor que la inteligencia falsa de los poetas de verdad), resonará el alma secreta de ese timo en fase terminal llamado la cubanidad.

Especial "Desde Cuba: New Cinema" en el NEFIAC, Estados Unidos

New England Ibero American Film Festiva (NEFIAC)

Especial "Desde Cuba: New Cinema" (Third Edition)

Director in Focus – Esteban García Insausti



Mr Insausti, was born in Havana in 1971 and is a graduate of the Instituto Superior de Arte (ISA). In addition, he obtained a degree from the Escuela Internacional de Cine y Television – the school founded by Fernando Birri and Gabriel García Márquez. He began his professional career as a script writer for cuban television at age 19, to later become one of the first independent filmmakers of his generation. He enters the cuban film industry (ICAIC) with his first fiction short film “Mas de lo mismo” (More of the same), which was chosen as an official selection in Cannes 2001. Some of his other films include : “Luz Roja”, “Tres Veces Dos” –which was the official selection at Montreal, Biarritz and Huelva Film Festivals in 2004 and which was also chosen by FIPRESCI as one “10 best films shown in Cuba during the Festival de Nuevo Cine Latinoamericano de La Habana in 2004”. Another film, “Existen” an experimental documentary, won the Premio Coral to the Best Experimental Film in 2007 in the same Festival.

Mr Insausti is currently considered by several national and international critics as one of the most prominent directors of the avant- garde movement within the film industry in Cuba. His most recent film, “Larga Distancia” (”Long Distance”) is currently in a postproduction stage.

Mr Insausti’s award winning film “Existen”, was presented in Providence during the First Edition of “Desde Cuba: New Cinema” in 2008. This year, he joins us as a juror for the Shorts Competition Award.

Special Program
"Desde Cuba: New Cinema" (Third Edition)

A segment dedicated to showcase the works of young and mostly independent cuban filmmakers, “Desde Cuba: New Cinema”, was originally presented in Providence in the fall of 2008 at the initiative of Christine Limonte, a Brown University student. This first and exciting event evolved into an ongoing program which is now presenting its Third Edition as part of the New England Festival of Ibero American Cinema, and which includes award winning short films and documentaries.

The significance of these films cannot be overstated. The lack of available resources for filmaking and producing and the economic isolation of Cuba have proven incapable of hindering the evolution of ideas, enthusiasm, hopes and dreams of a new young generation of filmmakers. Overcoming what at times may seem insurmountable burocratic difficulties, they turn to the streets and into themselves to find a story to tell and to create a fiction film, an animation or a documentary.

Once again, we are privileged to be able to share their talent and their work with our community of New England.

Panel Discussion with Director & Doña Dedé Mirabal after screening:


Mirabal sisters
Code Name: Butterflies | Nombre Secreto: Mariposas. Cecilia Domeyko, 2009,USA, 63 min.

"Code Name: Butterflies" is the first documentary to tell the powerful story of the Mirabal sisters of the Dominican Republic. In the 1950s, Patria, Minerva and María Teresa Mirabal played a crucial role in creating a secret resistance movement against Rafael Leonidas Trujillo, one of the most bloodthirsty tyrants the world has ever known. When the dictator had them assassinated and tried to make it look like an accident, public indignation signaled the beginning of the end of Trujillo’s dictatorship which fell six months later. The courage of these women who helped bring freedom and democracy to their country is legendary. Today, the Dominican Republic owes much to these incredible women who dared to fight for what they believed in.

Special Feature Presentation
Q& A with the Director, after presentation of the film.

MIGUEL COYULA – Writer, Director, Cinematographer

Miguel Coyula was born in Havana, Cuba, in 1977. He is part of a new wave of independent Cuban filmmakers working outside of the mainstream using digital technology on shoestring budgets. He has garnered many awards at film festivals with short films such as Dancing on Needles (1999), Nice Going (1999), Clase Z Tropical (2000), and The Plastic Fork (2001).

After graduating in 1999 from the prestigious International Film and Television School at San Antonio de los Baños, Cuba, Coyula came to New York on an invitation from the Providence Latino Film Festival to show one of his films.

While in New York he met Anna Strasberg of The Lee Strasberg Theatre Institute and was offered an acting scholarship. Returning to the U.S. to attend the Strasberg Institute, Coyula made his first feature, Red Cockroaches.

Reviewers reached for comparisons to Blade Runner: a bleak, futuristic Manhattan with flying cars, monumental Fritz Lang architecture in acid rain, and a long-dead sister who turns up alive to disrupt the world of her brother/lover. The 2004 Edinburgh International Film Festival described Red Cockroaches as “in the tradition of David Lynch” while Variety called it “undeniably inventive, visually stunning” and a “triumph of technology in the hands of a visionary with know-how.”

In 2009, Coyula received a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship in support of his work on Memories of Overdevelopment.

Memories of Overdevelopment premiered at Sundance 2010 and subsequently won the Havana Star for Best Film at the 2010 Havana Film Festival New York.

Coyula is currently in preproduction on a new feature, Blue Road, based on his own unpublished novel. It is the second film of a trilogy begun by Red Cockroaches.

Since 2000 she works in her first feature film project “El camino” (The Path), which is chosen for the Manhein Coproduction Meetings in Heidelberg, Germany. It also receives the support of Fonds Sud Cinema Program from the French Ministry of International Affairs and a scholarship from Center of Scriptwriting (CECI), from Normandy, France. In 2008, after seven years of hard work, her first long feature film, “El camino” (The Path) finally sees the light in the Berlinale and she will be sharing with us at NEFIAC this year. She is currently working in the postproduction of the documentary “Apocalipsis de Nuestro Tiempo” (Apocalypse of our Time) about the recent work by the costarican-chilean painter, Julio Escámez and also the documentary “Les Invisibles” (The Invisibles) about the drama of the Haiti people after the earthquake. Another project in which she is involved is “Cine Carretero” that she is devoted to bringing cinema to marginal communities. “Knife of the Soul” is her second long feature film project, which is in its development stage at the present moment.

He wrote and directed the short film Gemini and wrote two feature scripts: “The Woman Who Feared the Sun” and “Contracorriente” (Undertow).

Profane Expressions: Reception September 11

Septemeber 11 - October 2, 2010 | Reception September 11, 7-10 pm

David Castillo Gallery is pleased to present "Profane Expressions", curated by Glexis Novoa, with works by Sandra Ceballos, Hamlet Lavastida, Ernesto Leal, Yali Romagoza, and Ezequiel Suraez.

Emerging from a trajectory that began in the latter half of the 1960s, when language emerged as an independent medium, the artists in Profane Expressions explore the variety of modes language can be utilized in artistic practice to convey and manipulate meaning. The works in Profane Expressions reassert the notions of “message as medium” that were initially pioneered by artists like Lawrence Weiner, Robert Barry and Joseph Kosuth. The works function within forms of communication and use expression as their primary medium of aesthetic experience.

Sandra Ceballos, Ernesto Leal, Hamlet Lavastida and Ezquiel Suarez utilize text in their works to reveal the power of language as a tool to convey and distort meaning. In a series of paintings that conjoin the reproductions of anonymous medieval human dissections with political texts, Ceballos employs the compositional devices of painting and collage to confound the meanings of her source materials to re-present new subjects.

Ernesto Leal’s work examines the power of language in art criticism to the reception and interpretation of an artist’s work. Occupying the gallery walls where his work would be, are vinyl texts written by critics discussing Leal’s work. By substituting his physical work with these texts, Leal raises questions about the roles of artists and critics as evaluators of meaning in art.

Tropaje de Ideas (2009) is a wall installation composed of 59 sheets of paper in which Hamlet Lavastida has cut out a series of passages from a found speech. Similar to Ceballos, Lavastida re-appropriates found discourses to explore the psychology of self-reflection and criticism in the media. Ezequiel Suarez’s drawings reveal the artist’s interest in the aesthetics of Outsider Art and the visual language of advertising and political slogans. Applying fashion and performance as formal languages, Yali Romagoza will present a series of male and female garments that explore the way clothing is used to communicate varying ideas of gender, power and identity.
