The thread is an unprecedented interview to Eliseo Alberto Diego (Lichi), interweaving common historical events, music, cinema, literature, and the nature of both peoples.
Valuable testimonies of diplomats, intellectuals, artists, athletes, educators and people, are included in the documentary.
Cubans Silvio Rodriguez, Eusebio Leal, Pablo Milanes and Rosita Fornes, and Mexicans Paco Ignacio Taibo, Elena Poniatowska, and Armando Manzanero, stand out among those interviewed.
This is the first work as a director of Cuban actress, Idalmis del Risco, who lives in Mexico two decades ago. “It was an enriching challenge to summarize many centuries of ties between peoples in an 82-minute documentary, with plenty of footage,” she said during the premiere of the film in Havana, in March 2015.
