La Extraña coming to cinemas May 15th
The movie “La Extraña” filmed in Casa de Campo throughout November and December of last year will be released in cinemas across the Dominican Republic on May 15th.
Executive producers of La Extraña are Joan Giacinti and Casa de Campo villa owner Sergio Gobbi, who with more than 45 years experience worked alongside another Casa de Campo local, Leo Proano, who is the movie’s producer.
La Extraña starring Frank Perozo and Evelyna Rodríguez tells the story of a “passionate yet mysterious love affair” that unfolds right here in the Casa de Campo resort.
Locations used in the making of La Extraña include Altos de Chavón – the St. Stanislaus church and The Club riverside restaurant, the Casa de Campo hotel – the main lobby and front entrance, the gas station, the Dye Fore golf course and the Marina Casa de Campo – the Casa de Campo Yacht Club and the Azimut café. Setting sail outside of Casa de Campo, in a yacht sponsored by IBI Nautica with Azimut, filming also took place at Catalina island and Palmilla.
Starring alongside Frank Perozo and Evelyna Rodríguez are Yorlla Castillo, Laura García Godoy and Crystal Jiménez, as well as Irving Alberti.
The filming of ”La Extraña” in Casa de Campo is particularly interesting because of the very special relationship between Sergio Gobbi, Charles Bluhdorn (of Gulf + Western who started the Casa de Campo resort in the 1970′s) and the original version of La Extraña… in its original version La Extraña was called “L’ètrangere” and was in fact Sergio Gobbi’s first world-wide hit, which led him to being contracted as a producer by Charles Bluhdorn, then president of Paramount Pictures.
