    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – Fidel Castro’s rebels line the streets in front of the Government Palace in Havana while loyal soldiers to Fulgencio Batista shoot them from above. Very nearby, Ernest Hemingway and a journalist friend hide behind a parked car.

    An international team of filmmakers has been reliving these and other historical scenes on the streets of Havana for “Papa”, a biopic about the friendship between Hemingway and the journalist in the 1950s in Cuba.

    It is a project that will take years and whose producers describe as the first film on the island since the 1959 revolution.

    Because of bad relations between the two countries since then and the trade embargo imposed by the United States 52 years ago, other films that take place in Cuba, including “The Godfather II” and “Havana”, were filmed in the Dominican Republic.

    “It was vital for me to do it in Cuba, where everything happened that is in the script, where the finca is, on which he lived (Hemingway), where his boat and all the places were, from the Morro Castle to Cojimar, where he used to fish,” said the film’s director, Bob Yari. “Everything is here. Trying to duplicate it elsewhere was not attractive to me.”

    Filming began in March and concluded during the weekend. It is a Canadian-Cuban-American production, with logistical support from the Cuban Institute of Cinematographic Art and Industry, especially concerning the shooting places.
