Giant Screen Films and BBC Earth are teaming with Golden Gate 3D on a new large-format film about Cuba that will be shot entirely in the island nation, Variety has learned exclusively.
The film, which has the working title of “Cuba” and is produced by San Francisco’s Golden Gate 3D, will be distributed globally by Giant Screen Films. “Cuba” will be produced in association with BBC Earth and exec produced with BBC natural history filmmaker Neil Nightingale (“Walking With Dinosaurs”).
“In many ways, Cuba is a place whose past is still alive today and consequently offers a fascinating cultural and environmental study,” Nightingale said.
Peter Chang is directing the film from a script by Mose Richards. Production is under way with a target release for early next year. “Cuba” will focus on the nation’s culture, meticulously maintained colonial architecture and pristine ecosystems at a time when the nation is undergoing economic and social change.
