In fact, it was the beginning of the film’s journey in Spain, first in Alcala de Henares and then in Madrid, where Fontan and executive producer Tatiana Nemecek explained how the idea of the film resulted within the Argentinian-Cuban Fraternity Space in 2018.
Fontan told Prensa Latina that during his first visit to Europe, before in Italy, there are more expectations to promote the documentary than in the desire to tell any distinguishing characteristic of the Cuban Revolution on the occasion of its 60th anniversary in 2018, he learned about the story of more than 26,000 children from Ukraine, Russia, Belarus and Moldova.
Cared for and cured by the medical program developed in the Tarara International Pioneers Camp, between 1990 and 2016 (…) it seemed wonderful to us to be able of to delve into that issue about which there was no much information on the Internet and other media, Fontan noted.
Organized by the 26 de Julio group, promoter of the “It’s time! Let’s break the blockade against Cuba” campaign, the events in Alcala de Henares and Madrid allowed for a closer look at Cuba’s contribution to the recovery of children affected by the nuclear power plant accident in Chernobyl.
Toledo, the Canary Islands, Andalusia, Alicante and the Basque Country will be Tarara’s next venues in Spain, to try to unveil a story “quite silenced by the hegemonic communication groups,” producer Tatiana Nemecek said.
