Camagüey, Cuba, Nov 4 – Stay at home, by the Camagüey filmmaker Oscar Alejandro Viñas Pendones, won the Spot Award from the central jury of the 30th Audiovisual Show El Almacén de la Imagen, which is organized annually by the local branch of the Hermanos Saíz Association .
The work distinguished “by the effectiveness of its speech for from the imagination of the director and the childlike grace of its protagonist to communicate that even in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, joy and hope are not alien.”
Its director refers that the character of his promotional audiovisual is Alma Liz García de Varona, a nice, imaginative, happy girl … “an actress, an artist, without wanting to be, without trying,” said Viñas Pendones.
It was proposed to film the spot to contribute as an artist to raise awareness of the need for social isolation and hygiene as alternatives to avoid the contagion of the epidemic that registers more than 45 million confirmed people in the world and more than one million deaths.
He also said that “through a child’s language and visuality, explain the importance of staying at home, complying with hygienic-sanitary measures, but not for adults, but for children. So that from a young age they understand the importance of health in our country ”.
The audiovisual stay at home also reflects the Cubanness and the gratitude to the Cuban medical personnel and the world who are fighting the new SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus.
Oscar Alejandro Viñas Pendones, a member of the Hermanos Saíz Association (where part of the young Cuban artistic avant-garde is grouped), also received the Nicolás Guillén Foundation Award with the audiovisual to Mi Camagüey.
