During the Miami International Film Festival, Miami becomes host to some of the best international actors, directors and filmmakers from around the world. For a brief moment we become the Mecca for the film industry and every night we can attend a celebrity filled red carpet premiere or catch a glimpse of some of the best international films we wouldn’t ordinarily get a chance to see. One of these rare moments occurred this week where we had the opportunity to meet and talk with Angie Cepeda. This Colombian born actress has graced countless films throughout Latin America, Spain and “Love for Rent” in the U.S. Now Angie Cepeda is in Miami for the U.S. release of her latest project “With or Without Love” (“Una Hora Mas En Canarias”).
Angie explained to us that her character “Claudia” is a beautiful successful wine shop owner with a gorgeous husband and an even better looking lover “Pablo.” Her lover tires of sharing her affection and leaves her for another woman as he flees to the Canary Islands to get away from her crazy antics to get him back. This comedic musical is set in the best panoramic views of Tenerife with a catchy pop score that will have you humming long after you have left the theater.
Angie also shared with us that thee years ago she traveled to Spain for a film and has been living there ever since. She is now working on a film about a Brazilian soccer player and she is his lover. After playing so many rolls in a stellar career Angie Cepeda tells us “It is difficult for me to pin point what character I can relate too because they have been so different from who I really am. I live my life day to day with a strong work ethic and humility. I like to set short goals for myself and accomplish them, I always try to enjoy every individual moment life has to offer.”
International celebrities like Angie Cepeda bring a new insight to films from around the world and make the Miami International Film Festival a Haute event not to pass up.
