Torres, Daniel Diaz


Daniel Díaz Torres, Director and screenwriter, was born in Havana in 1948. Díaz Torres began working at the Cuban film institute ICAIC in 1968, first as a film critic and later as a director’s assistant and instructor. After focusing on documentaries, he made his feature film debut with Jíbaro in 1985. But it was Alicia en el Pueblo de las Maravillas - one of the most controversial films in Cuban film history - that brought him international recognition. Since the mid-1980s, Daniel Díaz Torres has been considered one of Cuba’s most important filmmakers.
