"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.
