After a lifetime of directing The National Choir, Digna Guerra has many secrets to reveal. Focused on her and her family, the film accompanies the life of this woman who has become an artistic icon. Her music, as her name, conjures notions of dignity (Digna), while her life is a constant battle (Guerra). At its bow at the Havana Film Festival, DIGNA GUERRA was recognized with a prize by the Federation of Image and Sound Schools of Latin America.
