Making films in the regions is a commitment we have had since the creation of Studio AYMAC over 7 years ago. Today, we can affirm that this journey filled with adventures has allowed us to tell stories in unexplored places, facing unique challenges, and proposing diverse production schemes where the only non-negotiable element is quality, not only in terms of technical equipment but also in the well-being of the filmmakers, safety, and every link in the legal chain.
Having traveled the world for three years, the film shot in the salsa capital will finally premiere next Friday, June 9th, in one of the most emblematic spaces for art and independent cinema exhibitions: La Tertulia Museum’s Cinemateca.
