Cinema speaks everything in a big way,” said Sandeep Marwah President of Marwah Studios and Chair for Indo Cuba Film and Cultural Forum.
El Mayor is undoubtedly a long-awaited film in Cuba, where Agramonte is remembered as a symbol of the struggle for independence, a legendary figure, an example of the courage of those who gave their lives in the redemptive battle fields. Based on real events from the mid-nineteenth century, the film shows the incidents and anecdotes from the intense life of the Cuban hero Ignacio Agramonte from childhood to his death.
