"VIVA CUBA"
Celebrating 50 years of the Cuban Revolution

Cuban director Juan Carlos Cremata's film tells the story of a young girl who runs away from home because her mother plans to leave Cuba and she doesn't want to go. Malu is from a priveleged family and her single mother does not want her to play with Jorgito, as she thinks his background coarse and commonplace. Jorgito's mother is a socialist that is proud of her family's less privileged social standing. What neither woman recognizes is the immense strength of the bond between Malu and Jorgito. When the children learn that Malu's mother is planning to leave Cuba and take her along, they decide to travel to the other side of the island to find Malu's father and persuade him against signing the forms that would allow it. 2005, Cuba, 80min., Spanish with English subtitles.
