Canadian Premiere
Fábula had its World Premiere at the 2011 Havana Film Festival.


In a cosmopolitan Havana, Arthur meets and falls in love with Cecilia. Their idyllic aspirations for love and happiness quickly meet with complications. Fable is ultimately a moving, sincere exploration of the possibilities for love in a city defined by economic and social adversity.

''Fable is a love story, a movie I’ve made from reason, a movie with a colder, more cynical, maybe distant tone..... in Fable the look is way more external, more distant, a lot more from observation and reason. It doesn’t mean it’s not a passionate film, because it is a love story, but it’s about passion seen from reason.'' Dir. Lester Hamlet.

En una cosmopolita ciudad de la Habana. Arturo, un joven habanero, se enamora de Cecilia. Su aspiraciones de encontrar el amor y felicidad rápidamente se encuentran con complicaciones. Fábula es finalmente un sincera exploración de las posibilidades del amor, en una ciudad definida por las adversidades económicas y sociales.

''Fábula es una historia de amor, una película con razonamiento, con un tono más frío, cínico y probablemente distante.... en Fábula la mirada es más externa, más distante, con mucha más observación. No significa que no sea un filme sin pasión, porque es una historia de amor, pero es acerca de la pasión vista con razonamiento.'' Dir. Lester Hamlet.
