"This release is paramount as it is not common to have a major Cuban State producing house as Cubavisión joining into a co-production with the independent private filming sector. The movie had also a minor funding participation of RTV Comercial. We are very glad for this opportunity to work with State- owned stations.", said Patricia Santa Coloma, CEO of Producciones Almendares (www.producciones-
The production of Agnus Dei is a sample of the wide range of action of Producciones Almendares, a well-known private production startup leaded by Santa Coloma, a local entrepreneur and producer. Their experience of more than 8 years is vast, which places them as the leading company in the audiovisual independent emerging industry.
Agnus Dei was written and directed by young filmmaker Danilo C. París who found inspiration to develop the story on the piece Agnes de Dios, a play by American playwright John Pielmeier.
This is the fourth audiovisual collaboration on a fictional short movie between the creative binomial París- Santa Coloma, and they are starting to work on a new film, La criatura (Creature), .
París' adaptation recreates the story of a nun who committed a crime that she claims she does not remember, while a psychiatrist studies her case and the mother superior insists on her innocence.
The casting includes popular Cuban acting talents such as Yazmín Gómez, Ray Cruz, Andrea Doimeadiós, Reinier Díaz and Amalia Gaute. The film succeeds on bringing to life a plot with touches of suspense, religion and eroticism.
Notable credits in this version of Agnus Dei (a Latin phrase that means Lamb of God) go to photography director David Cruz, and editor Eric González, two notable contributions to the visuality achieved. The meticulous effects and post-production work by Allpa Studio team are also a notable in this production.
