OLA Film Festival: Conversation with Juan Caunedo Domínguez, Director of “Before the Ferry Arrives” - 11/15/19
November 15th, 2019
As part of the OLA Film Festival, organized by the Organización Latino-Americana of Eastern Long Island, the Parrish hosted a special screening of Before the Ferry Arrives, followed by a conversation with Director Juan Caunedo Domínguez, live from Madrid, Spain. The film, a directing debut of Caunedo, alongside Vladimir García and Raúl Escobar Delgado, is a dark comedy that explores the sense of expectation and ambiguity experienced by Cubans when it was announced in 2015 that, after more than 50 years, a ferry service would resume between U.S. and Cuba, Before the Ferry Arrives is a smart portrait of a near-future Havana still in the midst of the restoration of U.S.-Cuba relations. The film, bold in form and structure, mixes elements of animation with live action, experimental and documentary film.
Our Friday Night programs at the Parrish are made possible, in part, by presenting sponsor Bank of America, with additional support provided by The Corcoran Group and Sandy and Stephen Perlbinder.
