      Cuban Film Awarded Grand Prix at Pan American Festival

      Havana, March 1 (AIN) The Cuban film Roble de olor (Scent of Oak),
      directed by Rigoberto Lopez, was recently awarded the Dikalo Grand
      Prix at the Pan-African Film Festival that took place in Cannes,
      France.

      The film tells a love story of a black woman from Saint Dominique,
      Haiti, and a German businessman, who cultivated the most profitable
      coffee plantation in Cuba, Angerona, in the first half of the 19th
      century, reported Granma newspaper.

      The film is a co-production of Cuba with France and Spain, starring
      Jorge Perugorria and Lia Chapman. Roble de olor was the first fiction
      film produced by Lopez, who wrote the script along with Eugenio
      Hernandez.

      During the 25th Latin American New Film Festival that took place in
      Havana in 2003, the film was awarded the Educational Cinematography
      Prize.
