Argentinian PBT magazine posthumous tribute, June 1911
A feature film
Based on the true life story of Chevalier Brindis de Salas
(1852-1911). A freeborn descendant of African slaves, he was an accomplished Cuban violinist. His virtuosity had compared to the Italian Nicolo Paganini, the most celebrated violinist of the early 19th century. Thus he became known as “The Black Paganini.” He performed both as a solo artist and as a violinist in international orchestras throughout Europe, North America and South America and received the highest honors and awards from Western governments and European monarchies. Despite his many accomplishments and celebrated career, he met a fateful, Icarian end.
Graphic novel adaptation by Saeta Hernando upon Elio Bern's script
