You may watch below the first official trailer of Sergio And Sergei, the upcoming drama movie directed by Ernesto Daranas based on a script he co-wrote with Marta Daranas and starring Tomás Cao, Héctor Noas Uriza, and Ron Perlman:
SERGIO AND SERGEI
A remarkable story of friendship beyond all borders.
“It’s 1991, the USSR is gone and the Cold War is over, but one man has yet to find out: on the space station Mir, Sergei (Héctor Noas), the last Soviet cosmonaut, can see the entire planet but his own country has disappeared. With no funds to bring him back, he’s now circling the Earth 16 times a day, cut adrift from his land and home.
Meanwhile in a crumbling Cuba, the Communist dream is also coming to an end for Sergio (Tomás Cao), a Marxism philosophy professor and Radio enthusiast. Surviving in Havana now means running a clandestine rum distillery and an illegal cigar factory with his 65-year-old mother.
One fateful night, an exchange of radio frequencies accidentally connects Sergio and Sergei. The two men quickly form an unusual friendship in a world of political uncertainty. When a meteorite suddenly damages the Mir, Sergei asks Sergio to help him get back to Earth. With the help of Peter (Ron Perlman), an American friend having connections at NASA, Sergio designs a plan to rescue Sergei from the icy depths of space. But Sergio doesn’t know that he is under surveillance and that his plan will be watched every step of the way…
From award winning Cuban director Ernesto Daranas (Behavior) comes a political satire inspired by true events about the Soviet Cosmonaut saved by Coca-Cola.”
