Suite Habana / Suite Havana
Official Section - Opening Night Film

Havana, today, is a point of reference for many, a mystery for others, and a dream packed with contradictions and contrasts for those who love or criticize it. But Havana is not only one single space, one sound, one light; Havana is its people. And Suite Habana is a day in the lives of a few ordinary ?habaneros?. There are no interviews, no dialogues, no narrations; only images, sounds and music to cinematographically express the day to day business of a peculiar and unique reality. Each character represents the curious diversity of the social groups moving in the city... because there is not only one Havana: there are several invisible and different kinds of Havana lives.
Graduate in Spanish Language and Literature from Havana University, in 1962 he started in cinema as an assistant producer and, later, as an assistant director. In 1975 he started his career as a documentary maker with a dozen or so titles and in 1987 directed his first feature film, Clandestinos, followed by Hello Hemingway (1994), Madagascar (1996) and La vida es silbar (1998), winner of the Goya for Best Foreign Film. He is also a writer, having received in 1982 the Casa de las Américas Prize for his book Corresponsales de guerra.
