New Film: Rudy Mora’s “Y sin embargo se mueve”

Maya Quiroga (Cubanow) writes that Cuban TV director Rudy Mora is making his debut as a filmmaker with the feature film Y sin embargo se mueve [And Yet, It Moves], which is still going through the post-production stage. Y sin embargo se mueve is a musical in which seven major actors participate: Larisa Vega, Laura de la Uz, Manuel Porto, Osvaldo Doimeadiós, Eslinda Núñez, Raúl Pomares, and Adria Santana. The feature film also contains elements from adventure films.

Mora comments, “The idea of the film was born from the play staged by the La Colmenita Children’s Theater Company, based on the original by Russian writer Alexander Jmélik. It was a suggestion from Carlos Alberto Cremata—director of La Colmenita—and from singer-songwriter Silvio Rodríguez.” Singer-songwriter Rodríguez, who is in charge of the musical arrangements for the film, has a cameo role in the film.

Quiroga says, “With this film, Mora walks a path that gets close and far from his previous experiences. The author of TV shows as controversial as Doble Juego and Diana was aware that the theatre and cinematic languages are not similar. That’s why he wrote a different script.”

Rudy Mora is known for being one of the Cuban producers that have left their imprint on the small screen due to his personal and intimate outlook and his search for a different aesthetic: what has been called TV authorship. Now he wishes to make intelligent cinema. [. . .] Mora affirms that he has always tried to incorporate cinematic language into television. Something well known is that with the development of new technologies, boundaries begin to be broken between cinema and television.
