Book on Cuban television to be launched soon

Havana, Sep 10 (Prensa Latina) The Fayad Jamís bookstore in Havana is preparing its stage to launch the book "Memorias de un olvido," a look at the foundational stage of Cuban Television, from 1950 to 1962.

The event, scheduled for September 13 at 3 p.m., local time, in Old Havana, will promote dialogue on this three-volume literary work, published by Ediciones En Vivo and written by José Raúl Estol (1928-2020), winner of the 2012 National Television Award. The director of the publishing house, Norma Gálvez; film critic and researcher Mario Naito, and journalist and critic Fernando Rodríguez will participate in the book lunch.

We expect that this study we now comment on will serve as an inspiration and guide to present and future audiovisual researchers and scholars in their work, not only as a source of information, but also as a model of systematization and presentation of the results of a research such as the one carried out by a professional of the stature of Master José Raúl Estol, the preface by researcher and professor Mario Masvidal suggests.

A founder of Cuban Television, José Raúl Estol was a Telecommunications Engineer and taught at the Faculty of Audiovisual Media Arts (FAMCA), attached to the University of the Arts (ISA).
