CLANDESTINOS

Fernando Pérez | Cuba | 1987 | Fiction | 89min

One of the most commercially successful and 'Hollywood' of all Cuban films, this tense, action-packed political thriller chronicles the romance between two young revolutionaries in 1950's Havana as they fight for their lives against Batista's secret service. Cuban director Fernando Perez’s feature debut is based on real events from the early days of the revolution, and hailed by critics worldwide.

En su momento fue éxito de taquilla la ópera prima del director cubano Fernando Pérez. Película de acción y suspenso al major estilo de Hollywood donde se narra el romance de dos revolucionarios en los años 50 acechados por la policía secreta de Batista. Inspirada en hechos reales la película ha sido elogiada por la crítica internacional.


Fernando Pérez graduated from the University of Havana with a degree in Language and Spanish Literature, and began working in the Cuban film industry in 1971 as an assistant director, before directing his first documentary in 1975. His feature debut was the drama Clandestinos (1987) but it wasn’t until Madagascar (1994) that he garnered significant international recognition. Pérez later directed La Vida es Silbar (1998) and Suite Habana (2003). Suite Habana is considered by some critics to be the best Cuban film in decades. Throughout his career he has received numerous awards in different festivals both in Cuba and abroad, being awarded the National Film Prize in 2007.
