Film Screening event followed by Q&A with Director Ernesto Fundora Hernández. This film surveys the life and work of one of the most complex and interesing writers in the Spanish language. It reviews the most outstanding traits of his rare personality, encompassing a broad panorama that includes the hermeneutical analysis of his work, the sociopolitical context in which he lived, and the more day-to-day anecdotes of this great Havana-born author. Film Director, Ernesto Fundora Hernández's, fundamental motive in this audiovisual piece is to go beyond the myth surrounding Lezama Lima, bringing him closer to younger generations, based on an admiration that integrates poetic and mundane aspects of his life, transmuting the difficulting elements of his work, in the spirit of a Creole pleasantness which, without renoucing complexity, returns us to a potable and even funny Lezama Lima.
