Help Fund the First Ever Cuban Psychological Horror Film

By 10 April, 2012

Plans are afoot for developing the first ever Cuban psychological horror film. The man behind the project is Rudy Riveron Sanchez, a Cuban director currently based in Leeds. With the help of Cuban producer Sandy Perez and Cuban cinematographer Bilko Cuervo he hopes to Eres tú, papá? (‘Is that you, dad?’), a gripping psychological horror film set in Cuba. First though, he needs to raise some funds.

Eres tú, papá? tells the story of Liliana, a 15 year old girl, who has no choice but to move with her parents from the south-eastern province of Holguin to the capital Havana. Her parents are dreaming of a better life, following Liliana’s father’s promotion, but these dreams are shattered when he suddenly dies in a tragic incident. Missing her father, Liliana evokes his spirit using a black magic ritual but the spirit is evil and seeks to destroy what is left of the family. Liliana’s mother dismisses the visions as the result of her trauma. Will Liliana be able to convince her mother that the evil spirit is real or will she have to overcome this nightmare alone?
