Enrique Díaz Quesada, el padre del cine cubano.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NYcINUi7XT4&t=61s
Un incendio destruyó los negativos originales de la considerable producción cinematográfica concebida por Enrique Díaz Quesada, el primer cineasta cubano, quien falleció el 13 de mayo de 1923, en su residencia de la calle 19, en El Vedado, víctima de una neumonía provocada por el torrencial aguacero que resfrió sus pulmones durante una filmación que decidió no interrumpir.
Su escaso reconocimiento en la actualidad obedece a la tendencia cubana a la desmemoria, y además solo ha llegado hasta nosotros sesenta segundos de un documental observacional muy notable, titulado El parque de Palatino. Pero Díaz Quesada merece ser recordado por varias razones, entre otras, estas diez que a continuación enumeramos:
Diez razones para reconocer a Enrique Díaz Quesada, el padre del cine cubano, figura principalísima durante la primera mitad del siglo XX. Nació en La Habana un 14 de agosto de 1883.
1. Diecisiete de los cuarenta títulos de ficción rodados en Cuba entre 1907 y 1922 fueron realizados, y coproducidos por Enrique Díaz Quesada. Su desaparición física fue una catástrofe irreparable para el cine cubano, puesto que Santos y Artigas abandonó definitivamente la producción cinematográfica.
2. Tan vinculado estuvo al surgimiento y desarrollo del cine cubano que el primer filme dirigido por un compatriota (el corto publicitario El brujo desapareciendo, de 1898, realizado por el empresario y actor José E. Casasús) ya contaba con la colaboración del todavía adolescente.
3. En 1905, con apenas 20 años, fundaba la Moving Pictures Company, para ofrecer funciones en los teatros Martí y Albisu, donde comienza a presentar noticias locales, que él mismo rodaba, con el nombre de Cuba al día. En este noticiario se registraron decenas de medulares acontecimientos en la vida política y cultural de la nación, incluida la sublevación del partido Independientes de Color, en la región oriental.
4. Le dio forma al reportaje turístico en Cuba con unas vistas de la ciudad de La Habana, que constan de un rollo y llevan por título La Habana en agosto de 1906. En 1909 realiza también el primer corto de tema religioso al filmar las tradicionales fiestas en honor de la Virgen de la Caridad en Camagüey.
5. Luego de acondicionar el primer estudio cinematográfico cubano, filmó los cortos de ficción Duelo a orillas del Almendares, Criminal por obcecación y Juan José. Díaz Quesada fungiría, desde entonces, y a lo largo de todas sus películas posteriores, como director y fotógrafo de casi todas sus películas, y además se encarga generalmente del revelado e impresión.
6. En 1913 acomete el primer largometraje con que cuenta la filmografía nacional: Manuel García o El rey de los campos de Cuba, con el pleno respaldo de los productores Santos y Artigas y que fuera estrenado en los teatros Politeama Grande y Politeama Chico, en los altos de la Manzana de Gómez.
7. Si bien en otros países triunfaba el melodrama de sello italiano o el filme histórico afrancesado, Díaz Quesada tuvo luces suficientes, apoyado por sus activos productores Santos y Artigas, para comprender la avidez de temas nacionales y sus restantes largos se concentraron en temas y arquetipos populares de sesgo romántico histórico: El capitán mambí (1914), La manigua o La mujer cubana (1915), El rescate del brigadier Sanguily (1917), En poder de los ñáñigos (1917), La careta social (1917), Sangre y azúcar (1919), La brujería en acción (1920) y Arroyito (1922).
8. Entre las anteriores se encuentra la película más taquillera del cine silente cubano y que sus entusiastas productores declararon que era “el imponderable triunfo de la película nacional: loas a la mujer cubana por su sacrificio en la guerra de independencia: La manigua o La mujer cubana.
9. La hija del policía o En poder de los ñáñigos, filmada en 1917, fue el primer acercamiento del cine nacional al folclor afrocubano, y entre 1918 y 1919, La Zafra o Sangre y Azúcar, escrita por el prolífico dramaturgo Federico Villoch, se acerca al relato del idilio entre un humilde trabajador y la hija de un hacendado.
10. Díaz Quesada realizó también la primera y única serie en diez episodios realizada en la Isla: El Genio del Mal (1919-1920), inspirada en las series francesas y norteamericanas y que se estrenó con gran éxito de taquilla el 8 de noviembre de 1920 en el teatro Campoamor, frente al Parque Central.

El Teatro Campesino

El Teatro Campesino

The Eagle Sun has set on the horizon on this Thanksgiving Day.

It is with immense sadness that we share the incredible news that our Chicano maestro in the struggle, brother Noe Montoya, has tragically succumbed to the coronavirus.

To all of his extended family in El Teatro Campesino, bereft of a beloved fifty-year member, his shocking loss is incalculable and beyond belief. The Covid 19 pandemic has been merciless to an extreme, especially among farm workers, so it comes as no surprise that despite the risk, Noe did his utmost to alleviate the suffering of our fellow campesinos, continuing to make appearances to sing at car caravans organized to raise food for the workers. His great heart was always at the core of his humanity and commitment to our community.

But as an artist, he was the blood and bone of El Teatro, having joined the company as a teenage recruit in 1971. During the ensuing half century, he matured into our maestro of indigenous music, in addition to his many roles on stage, video and film as a vital core company actor. One of his first roles in 1972 was that of Tonatiuh, the Aztec Sun, as he majestically rose behind a pyramid in our first television special in Los Angeles. From the 1970s to 2008, he often reprised the role of Juan Diego in our biennial production of La Virgen del Tepeyac at Old Mission San Juan Bautista. His last role was just last year, before the pandemic hit, as Benito Juarez in the world premiere of “Adios Mama Carlota” at San Jose Stage.

In keeping with his artistry and wisdom with respect to our indigenous heritage, we acknowledge that Maestro Noe has now become like the Eagle Sun of our Mayan ancestors, setting on the horizon only to become the Jaguar Night Sun in his journey across the stars. It is with faith and hope in the Universal Creator that we celebrate his trajectory through the cosmos, and look forward to the inevitable sun rise again.

Ometeotl, hermano querido, descanse en paz!
