Washington Irving's Hemingway line can be drawn from Spanish and Latin American influence in American literature that is shaped by emigration Hispanic America, from the Bolivar, with the support of Chileans and other Latin American emigrants, was seen as a hero and figure comparable to George Washington, the American people, it shows Americans are those who for generations are named Bolivar, and right-wing elites who fought him at that time, to defend the poor, the same can be said of Hemingway in Cuba where paradigm in universities up to Homer for his epic novel "The Old Man and the Sea", now, an old dream of ICAIC that will be realized in the hands of a German director, a film about Hemingway the man and writer who inspired to leaders of the Cuban Revolution in the Sierra Maestra, as much or more as the American flag inspired the Venezuelan General Narciso Lopez when what is now drawing national flag of Cuba to Cuban intellectuals emigrated to New York. Now at last we have a film about the significance of Hemingway for Cubans. Gualterio Nunez Estrada, Sarasota, Florida, 34232.
De Washington Irving a Hemingway se puede trazar la linea de influencia espanola e iberoamericana en la literatura norteamericana que viene moldeandose por la emigracion hispana en America, desde que Bolivar, con apoyo de chilenos y otros latinoamericanos emigrados, era visto como heroe y figura comparable a George Washington, en el pueblo norteamericano, muestra de ello son aquellos norteamericanos que por generaciones se nombran Bolivar, y las elites de ultraderecha que lo combatian, en aquel tiempo, por defender los humildes, lo mismo podemos decir de Hemingway en Cuba donde es paradigma en las universidades a la altura de Homero por su epica novela "El Viejo y el Mar", ahora, un viejo sueno del ICAIC que se va a materializar en manos de un director aleman, una pelicula sobre Hemingway, el hombre y escritor que inspiro a los lideres de la Revolucion cubana en la Sierra Maestra, tanto o mas como la bandera norteamericana inspirara al general venezolano Narciso Lopez cuando dibujo la que es hoy bandera nacional de Cuba ante intelectuales cubanos emigrados en Nueva York. Ahora por fin, tendremos una pelicula sobre el significado de Hemingway para los cubanos.
The Cuban actor Jorge Perugorria could revive the last passions and adventures of a mature Hemingway, thanks to film that will allow Perrugoria to replace him in the silver screen.
The role of the American writer and journalist burdened with the feeling of losing his literary faculties in the last days of his life was handed him on a platter by the German producer Ernesto Loh, who did not doubt any moment to choose him even before deciding who will direct the film.
The project was presented in the Havana film Festival that have just finished. It looks as if the gay intellectual in the 1994 Cuban film "Fresa y chocolate" (Strawberry and Chocolate) were prepared now to play a character whom he looks alike.
Although he will devote the first months of 2010 to his first work's post-production, the feature film Afinidades, filmed with his partner Vladimir Cruz, Pichi as his friends calls him, will shoot El Regreso de Hemingway (Hemingway's return) between September and October in Cuba.
According to Loh, the movie, written by he and features Cuba's Arturo Soto as director, tells the story of a Cuban (Michael Roll) who emigrates to Germany and returns to the island years later looking for his wife. But instead of finding her, he comes across Hemingway's "ghost."
Loh travelled La Vigia Farm, where the writer lived from 1940 to 1960 and wrote his most impotents books, during his visit to Cuba last December.
The German producer also visits Cojimar, a litter town in the Havana coast, from where Hemingway set sail with Gregorio Fuentes on board in his fishing crusades.
"It'll be a challenge for me to play a character" who is a global icon, the actor said, adding that Hemingway left a mark on several generations with his "vitality and commitment."
