Special Screenings

A young couple in their 30s, Alex and Edith live a relationship made up of small gestures and everyday routine among the ruins of Cuban buildings. Milagros, an elderly woman, tries to survive by selling “manì” (typical Cuban roasted peanut cones) and spends her days listening to the radio and reading old letters. Frank and Alain, two nine-year-old friends, go to school and dream of emigrating together to the United States to become Major League Baseball players. Against the backdrop of San Antonio De Los Baños, a town in inland Cuba where time seems to stand still, these three narratives and their respective worlds unfold.
