NakedSword Film Works – Alfa
Alfa, a famous porn actor, must deal with his fears, insecurities and memories when he begins work on a new film without Yerry, his former partner in life and porn. On his first day of shooting without him, Alfa tries to act as in the past but can things be like before? Javier Ferreiro’s short film reflects on the difficult decision of letting someone go to move forward. Alfa is framed in the context of gay porn cinema in Cuba where pornography is banned but, little by little, it’s growing up an underground industry impulsed by foreign tourism. During the last year, Alfa has been traveling around the arthouse and queer film festival circuit (including The Guadalajara International Film Festival, Inside Out Toronto and Outfest Los Angeles). On the last visit of Francis Ford Coppola to the International Film and Television School of San Antonio de los Baños (Cuba), the six-time Academy Oscar Award winner said to the students that Alfa is a singular audiovisual, unique and never seen by him and he emphasized the inner world of characters who communicate incredible love and passion. Alfa is the love story of a man who has lost a loved one who was not only her love but also his working partner seen from a sensitive filmmaker.
