CineCuba free monthly film club programme September-October 2018
Monday, 29 October 2018, 7:30pm
Monday 29 October, 7.30pm: Strawberry & Chocolate (1993) dir. Tomás Gutiérrez Alea. Feature film. The story of an unlikely friendship between two men in Havana who couldn't be more different - one a middle-aged, gay artist and the other a young, heterosexual Communist - explores intolerance and homophobia in 1979 Cuba, asking: what is it to be revolutionary? With its brilliantly witty lines and romantic-comedy format, the film was hugely popular across the island and marked a crucial opening for the country's LGBT revolution. It was also the only Cuban film to be nominated for an Oscar in the US.
