fila20's documentary project The Chimera of Rice (La quimera del arroz) continues adding accolades during its development stage, this time from the prestigious Ibermedia's Fund for Ibero-American Projects, which decided to support our film among the 331 applications submitted.
Directed by Víctor A. Guerrero and developed by fila20's producer Reinel García Pérez, The Chimera of Rice follows the life of three peasant couples who moved to one of the most intricate and hostile Cuban regions to seek a better future within the rice business, leaving behind their homes and children.
This daring project has also been chosen so far by insuLAB, DocuLab Guadalajara, Muestra Joven's Haciendo Cine and Havana Film Festival's Nuevas Miradas, were it was awarded after the pitching forum.
Congratulations to the team behind The Chimera of Rice. We hope to see this film done soon!
