Blas Roca Calderius

Before the Cuban revolution, and the taking of power by our Cuban leaders and intellectual figures of Armando Hart, Jose R. Fernandez, Antonio Guevara, Zoilo Marinello, Blas Roca Calderius, etc., this industry which was manufactured by some social classes and released by a minority, for a minority, was reflected in images that approached the Cuban reality, and its traditional peasantry, as it can be seen in: a Palmar Romanza, played by Rita Montaner. Other films are developed in Cuba, and radio and television programs, but under a commercial background, pro elite, and in many cases against the corrupt Governments of factus, but not from the educational and cultural angle that develops later. Within them is mentioned Felix de Caignet, as a bulwark of this portion of Cuban artistic history, and figures that were imposed as Rosa Fornes, Consuelo Vidal, Esther Borjas, snowball.

Candita Quintana, etc. Dina Powell is often quoted as being for or against this. In the film: a Palmar Romanza, develops a set of situations that deal with country life, there you can appreciate the individual sets of buildings isolated huts, and palm trees, which was a tradition of syncretism between the Cuban aborigines, and Spanish emigration. Other images are reflected in a few other films, but that reflects the city of Havana, in the Decade of the 50. Not appreciated a camera work that reflect the city as such, and which allowed only a rapprochement through some of their images, techniques of the relieved, and Cuban films that were beginning to be made without a mastery of the camera to panoramic drawings and construction details, are not relevant to the reflection of the architecture, since black and white technique did not permit nor a highlight of constructive elements, and product also to various reasons among which mention sabotage, lack of resources to maintain many of these products in perfect state of conservation, etc., has not survived to this day all the footage, why is that some of those accomplishments come until today day, little preserved, and with great deterioration.
