The Cervantes Institute in Beijing, in charge of teaching Spanish, will host the exhibition until October 14, and will also screen the films Casa Vieja (Old House, 2010), Nido de mantis (Mantis Nest, 2018) and Inocencia (Innocence, 2018).
During the presentation, Cuban Ambassador Carlos Miguel Pereira said that this event is also a tribute to the foundation of the Cuban Institute of Cinematographic Art and Industry (ICAIC) and gives Chinese spectators the opportunity to get to know Cuban cinema.
He highlighted the contribution of this sector to strengthening bilateral relations, thanked the Cervantes Institute for hosting the screening and favored expanding cultural exchanges to new levels.
The director of Clandestinos, Fernando Perez, who participated in the event via video conference, presented the plot of his film and wished that the exhibition would serve as another expression of fraternity and communication between both nations.
Besides the opening of this event at the Cervantes Institute, the program to celebrate the 61st anniversary of Cuba-China relations included a soiree attended by government officials and officials from embassies accredited in China.
On that occasion, Qu Xiaoqi, especial representative of the Chinese government for Latin American Affairs, reviewed the development of relations and expressed hope for the continuity of the friendship built between the two socialist states.
