Florida, March 26.- The book Tomás Gutiérrez Alea, retrace my steps, which contains a selection of letters from the late film director, known as Titón, with Mirta Ibarra, the filmmaker’s companion for more than twenty years, was presented at the Center of Documentation and Pedagogical Information (CDIP) of Florida regarding the 65th anniversary of the Cuban Institute of Cinematographic Art and Industry (ICAIC).

The promotion of the text was enriched with comments from school librarians, methodologists from the General Directorate of Education and guest professors, about the notable director whose work transcends time, who highlighted some of his memorable films such as Memories of Underdevelopment, The 12 Chairs and Strawberry and Chocolate, among others.

The tribute meeting was also a good occasion to highlight other emblematic gems of national cinematography that have set the standard since the founding of the ICAIC on March 24, 1959.

The eagerness of those attending the activity to get closer to the life of who is considered the most outstanding filmmaker in the history of Cuban cinema, fueled the development of the presentation of the critical edition on such a significant date and reminded Floridian Lorenzo Luis Bancall , protagonist of the 1964 film Cumbite, also directed by Gutiérrez Alea.

In the book Tomás Gutiérrez Alea, retracing my steps, you will be able to understand not only the world of relationships established by Titón, but also the turbulent environment in which he lived and how he assumed it in a stage considered decisive for the development of Cuban cinema.
