Kimura A Panamanian Action Film. An action and drama film that uses the world of martial fights as a background, expects to win the public who can expect great surprises when it opens today, Thursday, January 26 in the local cinemas.
The movie is the story of brothers who will face each other in “Kimura”, the most important mixed martial arts of the region, in what becomes a road of redemption for the main characters.
Nick Romano and Robin Durán are the main actors in this violent and bold production directed by Aldo Rey Valderrama, who also contributed to the script written by Diego Otero.
The Visitor spoke with Fariba Hawkins, who produced the movie together with Jeico Castro Ferrari and Bernardo Kenny, she said that to take to fruition this piece of Panamanian cinematography has been a road full of challenges, among which the financing to produce the film and the fact that Panama is a newcomer in film production were the main challenges.
“We decided to start in this industry by making a genre movie, different and bold, but with the budget we had it was very complicated, because “Kimura” has action scenes, martial arts and that is very complicated when it comes to filming,” said the producer.
Hawkins expects that the projects final results will set a milestone in the Panamanian cinematography production.
“In fact, “Kimura” has many universal elements allowing the public from any country in Latin America to be identified with the characters. There are real, common people who go about their daily chores. For example, the girl who represents the Latin woman is a fighter and independent like many other in the continent,” pointed out Hawkins.
The film producers hope that Kimura wins the spectators hearts and want to present the movie in a different platform so it will be screened in all the countries of the continent. Meanwhile, the bets are on the “ringside” of the local cinemas.
