Argentine singer-songwriter Fito Paez will premiere his DVD “El Amor despues del Amor: 20 Años” (Love after Love: 20 Years) at the 34th International Festival of New Latin American Film, which begins Tuesday in Cuba, local media said.
Paez, who arrived on the island Friday as a guest at the film festival to be held Dec. 4-14, told local media that he will participate with the world premiere of his DVD.
He noted that the film of 1 hour and 20 minutes marks the 20th anniversary of his “El Amor despues del Amor” album, released in 1992.
The musician is also scheduled to give a one-off concert Dec. 5 at Havana’s Karl Marx Theater, the country’s largest, as part of his international tour “El Amor despues del Amor: 20 Años” (20 Years after Love).
He said that among his guests could be “some friends” including well-known figures of the Cuban trova such as singer-songwriters Silvio Rodriguez, Pablo Milanes, Santiago Feliu and Carlos Varela.
Paez said he felt “very happy to be back in Havana” and noted that the International Festival of New Latin American Film “is one of the most important in the world.”
This will be the fourth time Fito Paez has attended the Havana film festival, which in 1994 awarded him an honorable mention for his medium-length film “La Balada de Donna Helena” (The Ballad of Donna Helena).
