Along with the producers FULL HOUSE and MORENA FILMS and with the international distributor WILD BUNCH, HAVANA CLUB INTERNATIONAL is delighted to announce the Official Selection of the film 7 DAYS IN HAVANA in the Un Certain Regard section at the 65th Cannes Film Festival.

 

7 DAYS IN HAVANA is a snapshot of today’s Havana, a contemporary portrait of an eclectic, timeless and fascinating city, and depicted by seven filmmakers. Benicio Del Toro, Pablo Trapero, Elia Suleiman, Julio Medem, Gaspar Noé, Juan Carlos Tabío and Laurent Cantet captured, each in its own way, one day of the week.

 

Some of the seven stories making up the movie are based on three scripts written by famous Cuban novelist Leonardo Padura, coordinator of all the narratives. The film soundtrack is provided by Cuban musicians Descemer Bueno and Kelvis Ochoa, a duo well-known In Cuban pop music, and Spanish composer Xavi Turrull.

 

This selection confirms the artistic potential of this project supported since the beginning by the renowned producer of Cuban rum, Havana Club International, who has demonstrated over the years its commitment to the city of Havana and its inhabitants.

 

The company has led numerous projects showcasing contemporary Cuban culture throughout the world, particularly through the ‘Havana Cultura’ Initiative.
