Chico y Rita” named best ani­mated film at Goyas

Partly set in Cuba, the Spanish-British co-production “Chico y Rita” was named best ani­mated film late Sun­day at the Goya Awards, Spain’s ver­sion of the Oscars.

In Chico y Rita (Chico & Rita), Oscar-winning direc­tor Fer­nando Trueba and famed designer Javier Mariscal teamed up to cre­ate an epic ani­mated love story that occurs around the time of the Cuban Rev­o­lu­tion. High­light­ing a piv­otal moment in the evo­lu­tion of jazz and trav­el­ing from Havana to New York, Chico y Rita is a trib­ute to the music, cul­ture and peo­ple of Cuba.

The film was a col­lab­o­ra­tion between stu­dios Fer­nando Trueba PC SA, Estu­dio Mariscal SA, Magic Light Pic­tures and IOM Ltd.

For best ani­mated short film, the Goya win­ner was La bruxa, directed by Nico­lais Matji of La Fiesta PC.

Win­ning nine tro­phies at the Goya Awards was the Catalan-language Pa Negre (Black Bread), about a fam­ily drama in post-Civil War Spain.
