Cuban filmmaker Lillo Villaplana’s film Plantadas continued its streak of success and broke borders both in the United States and abroad.

The film was first released at the 2023 Miami Film Festival, and has since found a large audience, which has allowed it to stay atop Billboard and expand to new horizons.

After the festival, the first point where Villaplana’s work premiered was the CMX Cinema in the Dolphin Mall, where to this day it is still shown after 10 uninterrupted weeks.

Plantadas has won over the public with his story of courage and resistance, which Villaplana himself describes as a tribute to the victims of the Cuban dictatorship’s repression.

More than surviving in cinemas, it has become one of the most-watched films ever, so its time on Billboard has been renewed every week, thanks to the huge flow it has generated, which includes many celebrities.

In addition to its run in Miami, the film opened in Tampa, where it completed a theatrical run of three weeks, a total that was above average for a film, and a great achievement for an independent film.

Later, Villaplana and his team had the opportunity to travel to The Island House Festival in the Bahamas, where they presented their work, which deeply impressed the foreign public.

In which cities will Plantadas be screened?

Now, continuing that success, Plantadas will be coming to West Palm Beach on June 11th via a special screening taking place at 4:00 p.m. ET at the Cuban American Club.

The director commented to Periodico Cubano that his team is working to get the timing on movie theaters in different cities, but for the time being, unique special screenings have also been confirmed in Kentucky, Las Vegas and Los Angeles.

Likewise, it will hit theaters in Puerto Rico on June 8, the first country where it will be released in commercial cinemas outside the US.

It also continues to arrive on billboards in the Dominican Republic, although the release date, initially announced for late June, was postponed to July 11.

The film chronicles the ups and downs of a group of political activists against the dictatorship of Fidel Castro in the early 1960s and the repression at the hands of the incoming regime.

Planted will be available in theaters in Miami, where it will remain until at least May 25. Tickets are available at this link.
