And what will this project be about?
Precisely, the filming of Yesterday’s dream began this September 14, coinciding with the death anniversary of Dámaso Pérez Prado, who died in Mexico City in 1989. And they will ask themselves, what will the film in which Rubén Albarrán will come out be about?
Here is a brief part of the synopsis: “As in a dream, Dámaso Pérez Prado, the King of Mambo wakes up in Mexico City in the middle of 2020, the problem is that he is dead and has not realized it. Despite the confusion, he quickly understands that he came to find his muse: Magdalena. On his way he runs into Lázaro, a young man who will guide him through a city that he hardly recognizes, different scenarios that Pérez Prado lived have disappeared, but the music, the city and the night are still alive“.
A confused Damaso will thus try to reconnect with the great Aztec metropolis that he once musicalized, in which he is remembered as the “King of the Mambo” and where he defined the image of the witty dandy in his peculiar style. “It is the poetic journey of a dead man in search of a lost love, a Latin story with a lot of dance, music, where several women and a man lead us to talk about what is most intimate”said director Emilio Maillé
“Yesterday’s dream is not only a musician’s film, it is a musical drama”, he finished. Well, let’s wait to see how the film goes and how Rubén Albarrán performs on the big screen. Opinions?
