4th Sydney Latin American Film FestivalCuba, the Value of Utopia
Yanara Guayasamin, 2006, Ecuador, 120min, Documentary, Spanish / English
A profound documentary about the revolutionary generation.
The notion that the past is always present is a powerful one in Cuba. A poet, a songstress, a painter and even Fidel himself are the characters through whom Yanara Guayasamn recreates the Cuban Revolution and its aftermath. What do the witnesses and survivors of this bloody struggle have to say today, 50 years later? Their lives, their battles, their dreams and memories help build a vivid portrait of an entire generation and its leader.
