2009 L.E. Fuente Fuente OpusX The Lost City by Prometheus

In 2004, Andy Garcia began filming The Lost City (www.theLostCitytheMovie.com) and wanted to shoot one of the most memerable scenes of his movie at Chateau de la Fuente in July.  Unfortunately, there was no tobacco plants growning at Chateau de la Fuente during that time because the tobacco plants are usually harvested in March.

In order to help Andy Garcia, Carlito Fuente planted tobacco at Chateau de la Fuente during summer time so that Andy could film The Lost City. Read the full article of THE STORY ABOUT FUENTE FUENTE OPUSX THE LOST CITY

After the movie was shot at Chateau de la Fuente, the tobacco plants were harvested and have been aged.  Carlito Fuente has created very special cigars from these 5-year old tobaccos: Fuente Fuente OpusX The Lost City.  All cigars made with the tobaccos planted for The Lost City come with the black bands.

In addition, Carlito Fuente is releasing two rare, aged FFOX cigars in a tribute to Andy Garcia and The Lost City: Fuente Fuente OpusX Lancero and Love Affair which come with the red bands.

In the fall of 2009, the Fuente Fuente OpusX The Lost City cigars will be released worldwide.  Each box will come with The Lost City DVD.

The Lost City

Andy Garcia starred and directed The Lost City (www.theLostCitytheMovie.com).

"Set in 1950s Havana as Fidel Castro is seizing hold of Cuba, the film uses an epic backdrop to tell the intimate story of the Fellove family: tolerant club owner Fico (Garcia) and his more politically charged brothers, Luis (Nestor Carbonell) and Ricardo (Enrique Murciano). The film is a lush, gorgeous love letter to Garcia's homeland and a major accomplishment for any filmmaker, let alone a first-time feature director working with a budget of less than $10 million."  Jenelle Riley, Back Stage (www.backstage.com)
