Directed by Academy Awarding Winner producer, Bob Yari ("Crash and "The Illusionist"), "PAPA: Hemingway In Cuba" is the actual story about the relationship between Miami journalist Denne Bart Petitclerc (Giovanni Ribisi) and legendary writer Ernest Hemingway (Adrian Sparks).
The 1st American film shot in Cuba in 50 years; the Havana location delights as audiences are treated to the inside of Hemingway's estate, Finca Vigia.
The film's distribution and marketing aimed to entice the interest of literary buffs and Cuban enthusiasts. The campaign strategy included supporting the film's theatrical release with a presence at the Los Angeles Time Book Fair, made possible by promotional campaigns with Goodreads and Random House. We further encouraged engagement by organizing a nationwide grassroots outreach campaign tied to the opening date of the film that included literary clubs, colleges, bookstores, Hemingway organizations, and Cuban-related groups. Additional support included overseeing the Hollywood premiere of the film and after party at Arclight, Hollywood.
