Benicio del Toro receives Havana film award: ‘It’s hard to put into words what it means to me’
Liz   No Comments Article, Awards – Puerto Rican actor Benicio del Toro, one of the stars invited to the 36th Havana International New Latin American Film Festival, is scheduled to receive a prize on Sunday, when he will screen his new film “Escobar: Paradise Lost.”

“It’s hard to put into words what it means to me that a festival with such a high quality and history like this one is giving me a prize,” the actor told state media on his arrival in Havana, a city he has visited several times.

Del Toro, who played Argentine-born revolutionary Ernesto “Che” Guevara (1928-1967) in the “Che” films made by American director Steven Soderbergh, said Cuba was important to his career because of the two films.

The films about Che were screened at the film festival in Havana in December 2008 by the Puerto Rican actor, whose role as the Argentine revolutionary won him the best actor prize at Cannes.

Del Toro returned to Cuba in 2011 to direct “El Yuma,” one of the shorts in “Siete dias en La Habana” (Seven Days in Havana), a Franco-Spanish co-production.

Del Toro’s latest project tells the story of late Medellin cartel leader Pablo Escobar, a role that won him the Donosti Prize at Spain’s San Sebastian Film Festival.
