We have an exclusive Blu-ray clip from Cinedigm's Chico & Rita, arriving on Blu-ray and DVD September 18. The Oscar nominee for Best Animated Film is currently available on digital and VOD formats. Take a look at this scene, which offers a taste of how beautiful and unique this Cuban flavored drama can be.
Oscar-winning director Fernando Trueba (Belle epoque, Calle 54) and Spain's renowned artist and designer Javier Mariscal celebrate the music and culture of Cuba with an epic story of love, passion and heartbreak. Fresh off its worldwide theatrical release, Chico & Rita earned more than $2.2 million at the box office, was Oscar nominated for Best Animated Feature, took home Best Animated Feature at the European Film Awards, and was an audience favorite at the Toronto and Telluride Film Festivals. Featuring a red-hot soundtrack by five-time Grammy-winning Cuban musician and composer Bebo Valdés, with the music of (and animated cameos by) jazz legends Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Tito Puente, Chano Pozo, and others.
