ABOUT THE FILM

Eli, Lea and Ale are 3 young filmmakers. Their last project has been rejected by another movie festival. Tired of this, they swear to call everyone's attention with a very bizarre idea. First proposal was to make a pornography but that fell through. Second proposal was to make a false snuff video but that was too "soft". Their final proposal was to make a real snuff video, in which they kidnap, torture, and murder Marcial, the hated secretary of the Communist Youth group at the University. The gruesome plan is ready when Marcial enters Eli's garage but the plan is put to a halt once Marcial proposes them to film a documentary about the Communist Youth group. Marcial promises them with a substantial budget and a paid trip to Venezuela. The 3 filmmakers forget their initial plan and accept Marcial's proposal. They all travel to Venezuela, enjoy themselves to the fullest and even end up receiving much successful acclaim for their film.

es una buena historia sobre la realidad de muchos jovenes realizadores de hoy en dia, creo que, aunque no todo llegue a tal punto , si puede rayar un poco por no decir mucho en situaciones a las que puede llegar cualquiera en la Isla ante situaciones de esta naturaleza, ademas esto es un ejemplo que puede representar la realidad de cualquiera en Cuba no solo en el ambito del cine. Muchos en la vida real estan esperando una oportunidad para experimentar su propia pelicula snuff, y creo que no una falsa sino una real...
