Carlos Lechuga

Writer-filmmaker Carlos Lechuga (1983, Cuba) studied at the Universidad de las Artes in Havana and is a graduate of the Escuela Internacional de Cine y TV de San Antonio de los Baños (EICTV). His short films have won various awards at home and abroad. His debut film “Melaza” premiered at IFFR 2013 and received wide critical recognition. His second feature, “Santa y Andrés” kicked off a long a successful festival run at Toronto and San Sebastian, while stirring a long-lasting debate at home for being officially banned by Cuban authorities. Although it has never been publicly exhibited on the island until today, it is considered a landmark of Cuban Independent Cinema. “Vicenta B” is Lechuga’s third feature as writer-director.

In parallel to his filmmaking career, Lechuga is a celebrated writer known for his chronicles—published by Cuban independent media outlets such as “El Estornudo” and “Hypermedia Magazine”—in which he writes about his country’s everyday life in a sincere and emotional way. In 2020 he published his first novel “En Brazos de la Mujer Casada (In the Arms of a Married Woman)” and in 2022 “Ni Santa ni Andrés,” which he co-wrote with Adriana Normand.
