Description

Miami Theatrical Premiere!
NEW Redux Director’s Cut Version!

Paraíso (Paradise) (Directed by León Ichaso/USA/2009/106mins.)




With Miguel Guitérrez, Adrián Mas, Tamara Melián
Paraíso is the new independent film of Cuban-American writer/director León Ichaso. Entirely shot in Miami, with a crew of 10 and 4 film students, it had its World Premiere at the Miami International Film Festival, 2009. Ichaso, who directed the Cuban- American classics El Super, Bitter Sugar, Pinéro, and El Cantante, returns to Miami to tell the gritty tale of a Cuban exile’s arrival in Miami which leads to major trouble. A post-postmodern hybrid, part thriller, part drama, part existencial romance. . .Paraíso explodes with heart, color, music and a desperate tale. In Spanish with English subtitles.

OFFICIAL SELECTION: Miami Int. Film Festival, New York Latino Film Festival

“A STYLISH AND CAPTIVATING TAKE ON CULTURAL ASSIMILATION. A bracing blast of uncompromising honesty that will surprise anyone expecting another poignant and heartwarming drama about Cuban exiles…
” -Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald

“The SCORSESE of SALSEROS”-Mirta Ojito, New York Times

“Ichaso is the lone wolf of filmmakers, the one who has given up everything else for the sake of his art” Alejandro Rios, Cuban Film Series
