Event Details

dir. Sara Gómez, Cuba, 1978, 16mm, 78 mins, b/w, Spanish w/ English subtitles

De cierta manera layers documentary and fiction, moving adeptly between footage of the demolition of slums just outside of Havana in the early years of transition and reconstruction of the Revolution, footage of the rituals of the Abacuá, a secret and all-male religious society dating to slavery, and the story of a revolutionary romance between Mario, a bus driver who can question but not break from the discourse of machismo, and Yolanda, a school teacher who struggles with the effects of that discourse on her young students’ lives.  The film was being edited in 1977 by directors Tomás Gutiérrez Alea and Julio García Espinosa, just as Gómez died suddenly of an asthma attack.
