José Martí fue un hombre de una sensibilidad muy especial que marcó la historia de Cuba, pero también fue un ser humano común, corriente, como cualquiera de nosotros. Creo que eso es lo que hace grande a los grandes hombres. Mi película se sumerge en la complejidad cotidiana que formó el carácter de Martí durante su infancia y adolescencia.
La mirada será más personal que histórica, más subjetiva que biográfica.

José Martí was a man of a very special sensibility who marked the history of Cuba, but he was also a common, ordinary human being, like any of us. I think that’s what makes great men great. My film is immersed in the daily complexity that formed the character of Martí during his childhood and adolescence. The feel and look will be more personal than historical, more subjective than biographical.

This feature-length film by Cuba’s most recognized filmmaker, Fernando Pérez, won the most collateral awards at the 32nd International Festival of New Latin American Cinema. The film focuses on the childhood and adolescence of Cuba’s nineteenth-century hero José Martí, covering the years he lived in Cuba before being sent into exile for political sedition at the age of seventeen. The film has already obtained two awards at the Ibero-American Festival in Huelva, Spain. It has received top awards on the island and was named the best movie of 2010.

Special thanks:  We would like to thank all who have made possible the showing of this wonderful film. We thank especially SOMOS Distribution, which holds the license rights to this film, ViendoMovies and FlixLatino.
