FILM INFORMATION

Cuba’s official submission to the 2002 Academy Awards

Synopsis Juan Carlos Cremata Malberti's Nothing More is a remarkable debut feature that explores the repressive, crippling political and social aspects of today's Cuba while turning upside down all our comfortably cliched expectations about the U.S.'s island neighbor. Carla is a young postal worker who dreams of joining her parents in Miami even as she enlivens her own drab existence by opening and rewriting the very letters she is responsible for processing. Intermittently bursting into song and cleverly mimicking various cinematic styles, the film is hilarious as well as heartbreaking.

About the director Juan Carlos Cremata Malberti began his career in film as a writer, actor, and director for a children's television series in Cuba. While working for the program, he received a degree in theater and dramatic arts from La Havan Arts Superior Institut. His work won him a CARACOL award from the Cuban national union of writers and artists. In 1985, he was awarded a special artistic award from the Cuban Cultural Ministry. His work has appeared at international film festivals in Obehausen, Mannheim, Berlin, London, Leipzig, Hamburg, Sao Paulo, Copenhagen, Brussels, Friborg, Montevideo, and Madrid. Cremata and his work have won many awards worldwide. He was a film editing professor at Buenos Aires University and a film-directing professor at the Design and Comercial Panamerican School, also located in Buenos Aires. In 1996, Cremata Malberti was awarded a John Simon Guggenheim grant.
