French Mayor praises reception of Cuban Film Festival

Paris, Jun 17 (Prensa Latina) The mayor of Vitry-sur-Seine, Pierre Bell-Lloch, today praised the reception by this commune of the Paris Region of the second Cuban Film Festival, which he considered a cultural bridge between the two countries.

We are proud to host this event of the seventh art because cinema is a way to convey emotions and better understand the people, he told Prensa Latina about the festival, which runs until June 22 with seven feature films on the billboard.

For the mayor, the presentation of films that address various aspects of life in Cuba and the surrounding debates is an opportunity to get closer to the reality of its people.

Taking into account that information about Cuba circulates in media that is not always accurate, so people can learn about its reality, its history, and its challenges through films, he said.

According to Bell-Lloch, the second Vitry-sur-Seine Cuban Film Festival also expresses support for the picturesque commune to a people suffering and resisting the unjust U.S. blockade.
