Leonardo Padura, in Miami on his way to several U.S. universities where he will give lectures, this Tuesday Jan. 19 made a memorable stop in the Spanish Cultural Centre of this city in southern Florida: because he got to the conference room accompanied by Mario Conde in all the possible forms: from the books to the film image the character will soon have thanks to the trailer of the TV serial “Las cuatroestaciones” (The Four Seasons), passing through the “materialisation” of the character played on the screen by Jorge Perugorría and the vision of his transcendence collected in the documentary written and directed by LucíaLópezColl (yes, Padura’sLucía, the one he dedicates all his books to) whose provisional title is Escribir y vivir en Cuba. Conversaciones con Leonardo Padura (Writing and Living in Cuba. Conversations with Leonardo Padura), which on this occasion had its preview….

Undoubtedly, the most attractive moment for the public that crowded the room of Miami’s Spanish Centre was precisely the screening of the documentary, despite the fact that it hasn’t been completely finished since images and sounds still have to be mixed. Produced by Tornasol Films, in this 30-minute audiovisualLucíaLópezColl places the figure of Mario Conde within the work of the winner of the Princess of Asturias Award for Literature 2015 and for this it is backed by an interview with the writer and with the opinions of a notable group of Cuban artists (Perugorría himself, Pablo Milanés, Fernando Pérez, Roberto Fabelo, etc.), booksellers, readers, Padura’s fans who speak about his personality and his work. Mantilla, the Macondo of the creator of Mario Conde, also plays one of the leading roles of this documentary that will be officially premiered together with the TV serial made based on the first four novels of the Conde series, whose release is previewed for next April.
