Juan Padron’s Vampires return to Spain

Juan Padron’s Vampires return to Spain

Madrid, Jul 8 (Prensa Latina) Almost over a month after a tribute to Juan Padron in the Canary Islands, the late Cuban cartoonist, illustrator and filmmaker will be recalled again, now at the Casa de America in Madrid.

Ana Callejo, from the Communication department at Casa de America in Madrid, told Prensa Latina on Thursday that a digitized copy of the film ‘Vampiros en La Habana’ (Vampires in Havana) (1985) will be screened at the facility on July 19.

Before that, Padron’s book ‘Mi vida en Cuba’ (My Life in Cuba), which summarizes the memories of one of the most notable figures in Spanish-American comics, will be launched on Friday, July 16, at the Gabriela Mistral amphitheater.

The book, edited by Reservoir Books, was already launched in San Cristobal de Tenerife, during the 4th edition of the Quirino Awards for Ibero-American Animation, where a posthumous tribute was made to the creator of the mythical character of Elpidio Valdes.

His daughter Silvia Padron, who attended the Quirino festival in late May, has been invited to the meeting, to which multidisciplinary designer Javier Mariscal and journalist Mauricio Vicent, author of the book’s preface, will also participate.

Padron, who passed away almost more than a year ago, left a unique legacy in phrases that are part of the popular heritage in Cuba, not only of the intrepid Mambi fighter against the Spanish colonialism, but also his occurrences around vampires.
