Juan Pablo Daranas Molina's multi-awarded Yunaisy is finally available online… and for free! After two years of successful worldwide screenings at numerous film festivals, TV channels and streaming platforms, the 12 minutes short-film is now watchable on YouTube.
Written by Ana A. Alpízar and Daranas, and led by the performances of Ernesto del Cañal, Waldo Franco, Yaité Ruiz and Andrea Doimeadiós, the movie has been praised for its high-contrast black & white style, designed by cinematographer Alejandro Menéndez and colorist Alex Medina. fila20 filmes' frequent collaborator Irina Carballosa was in charge of the sound.
Yunaisy focuses on the dilemma of a young Cuban filmmaker who faces censorship for the first time. He must choose between taking a great career opportunity or maintaining the integrity of his work…
