Tunisia celebrates 126th anniversary of Venezuelan cinema

Tunis, Jan 26 (Prensa Latina) Starting on Thursday, the Cinematheque of Tunisia, in conjunction with the Venezuelan Embassy here, will screen a series of films to celebrate the 126th anniversary of Venezuelan cinema.

Held at the Tahar Cheriaa Hall, the celebration will be attended by Venezuelan filmmaker Atahualpa Lichy, who will interact with the public after one of his films is screened.

Several motion pictures will be exhibited, including his documentary “El misterio de las lagunas” (The Mystery of the Lagoons), premiered in 2011, and his first fiction film Rio Negro (Black River), from 1989, which will be presented on Friday.

All films are closed captioned in French, except for Jerico (Jericho), which is in English.

This date is usually marked as a tribute to the screening of the first films made in Venezuela, an event that took place at the Baralt Theater, in Maracaibo, on January 28, 1897. jg/abo/mem/mml/nac
