Alina of Cuba follows Fernandez’s life as a critic of Castro’s regime. Fernandez, who’s serving as an on-set inventive and biographical advisor to the movie, supported Franco’s casting as her father. The film is directed by Miguel Bardem and written by Jose Rivera and Nilo Cruz, and is slated to start filming in Colombia on August fifteenth. Behind-the-scenes footage of the movie can be featured in a documentary directed by Thaddeus D. Matula entitled Revolution’s Daughter, which may even embrace interviews with the real-life Fernandez.
