ROSA AND THE EXECUTIONER OF THE FIEND

ROSA AND THE EXECUTIONER OF THE FIEND
(Rosa y el ajusticiador del canalla)
A film by: Ivan Acosta (Author of EL SUPER)
 
Latin Jazz USA and MVD Visual are pleased to announce the release of Rosa and the Executioner of the Fiend for worldwide distribution on March 23, 2010.
 
Ivan Acosta, is the writer of the award winning film, EL SUPER, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary at the Bronx Museum of Arts, this week. Acosta has written 12 theater plays and 7 screen plays, including his feature film, AMIGOS, Candido - Hands of Fire, and How to Create a Rumba. The original script of Rosa and the Executioner of the Fiend won 2nd place at the International Literary contest, "Letras de Oro".

The film relays the story of Rosa, a Holocaust refugee, who has lived alone for more than 50 years in an apartment across the United Nations. When an intruder gets hold of her place, she takes him for a thief, a rapist and then a Nazi agent. But he is none of that. His mission is "to execute the greatest fiend the world has ever known". The drama that connects these two fictional characters is linked to five real episodes: the escape of thousand Jews from Germany aboard the St. Louis, in 1939; their arrival in Havana and their entrance denial; the indifference by the United States that send them back to Europe; and the tragedy of the Cuban children who participated in the (Pedro Pan Rescue Project), and a historical U.N. General Assembly of world leaders.
