This film comes at a very necessary time for our society, where the consolidation of national identity is urgent and it is necessary to highlight, mainly for the youth, the paradigms of Cuban history and heroes, but always with the intention of reflecting, beyond the characters, the human beings that were, he added.

The feature film El Mayor is a production of the Cuban Institute of Art and Cinematographic Industries (ICAIC) and provides for filming entirely in Camagüey for four months.
