Documentary Achievement Award

Director Ernesto Daranas Serrano and Screenwriter Ania Molina are expected to be in attendance to participate in a post-screening Q&A.

This screening is a part of the Spotlight on Cuba at Miami Film Festival, made possible with support of ArtesMiami

Nicolás Guillén Landrián was one of the most pioneering Cuban filmmakers in the 60s and 70s. However, his work was subject to censorship, and he was condemned to ostracism. His imprisonment and the involuntary psychiatric detentions which ruled his life marked an awful fate shared by his own films, which were kept away from the audience and from critics for decades. It was not until 2022 that part of the documentaries of Nicolás Guillén Landrián started to be restored. In the midst of this process, his widow, Gretel Alfonso, and the photographer Livio Delgado looked back on different episodes

Also screening separately is a retrospective series of his documentary shorts, titled Nicolás Landrián Retrospective Shorts.


Ernesto Daranas Serrano is a multi-award winning Cuban filmmaker. His three feature films have won hundreds of international awards and they have been Cuba’s official submissions to the Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film. His documentary Los últimos gaiteros de La Habana won the King of Spain Award. Bluechacha was nominated to a Latin Grammy. Conducta was nominated to the Goya Awards for Best Latin American Film. Sergio & Sergei had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.
