(Santo Domingo, February 2, 2019) It was not foreseen in the official schedule of screenings of this edition of the Dominican Republic Global Film Festival, but the Dominican film Colors had this Saturday its third function after the massive request of the public that, through social networks and in the ticket office of Blue Mall Cinema Palace, insisted that the film be screened again.
The director of the film, Luis Cepeda, said he is very happy about the reaction that the film has generated in the audience, “It has been as I imagine it, it is a beautiful film, which motivates people to return to feel emotions that they have not felt in some time”.
Consulted on his nomination among the eleven productions that compete in Opera Prima Ficcion of the FCGD, Cepeda valued it as very positive because it allows generating even more expectation so that the audience is interested and goes to the halls. “Colours is a movie that people have to see, I have not talked to the distributors yet, I hope to do it now that we leave the festival but it should not happen in the middle of the year, maybe in April, so that we are exhibiting it commercially”.
The billboard of the third day of the FCGD at the Blue Mall Cinema Palace, also included the films Kai, Memoirs Of A Man In Pajamas, Mr. Know It All, Just Like Our Parents, Nude Normandie, Neither Distinct, Nor Different : Champions, BPM (Beats Per Minute), Burning, Dream Florianopolis, Journey To A Mother’s Room, The Dead And The Others, Shoplifters / A Family Affair, Porn For Newbies and The Wailing.
