Documentary series ADN Cuba in production

Havana, Apr 25 (Prensa Latina) Cuban filmmaker Alejandro Gil is immersed in the production of the documentary series "ADN Cuba," anchored by Dr. Beatriz Manchego, director of the National Medical Genetics Center in Havana.

In statements to Prensa Latina via WhatsApp, Gil noted that the documentary has six episodes dedicated to six renowned figures in Cuban civil society.

The stories feature singer-songwriter Silvio Rodríguez, volleyball player Mireya Luis, writer and researcher Zuleica Romay, actor Osvaldo Doimeadiós, researcher and writer Nelson Aboy, and painter Roberto Diago.

The documentary series, produced by the Cuban Institute of Cinematographic Art and Industry (ICAIC), is a sort of dialogue with the DNA of those prominent figures, through which the different paths of national identity of their ancestors are recognized, the director said.
