Dir. Johnny Hendrix Hinestroza. Cuba/Colombia. 2017. Spanish with English subtitles

The movie is set on Cuba during the Special Period midway through the 1990s, at a time when a strict trade embargo was in force. The protagonists are a magnificent couple of septuagenarians who, as they hurtle towards the sunset of their lives, rediscover mutual love, and even a touch of passion.

Free and open to the public.
