Amidst the greatest crisis in Cuban history, a boy's life will change forever

Cuba, summer 1994. In the midst of período especial, one of the greatest crises in the country’s history, thousands of Cuban rafters try to reach the United States illegally, never sure if they’ll make it out alive. With holidays starting, Carlos plunges into a carefree August, wandering around with his friends and falling in love for the first time. Little does he know about the country’s uncertain future, until one by one, neighbors and friends leave in search of a better life, friendships break apart and families split up. In this hot summer, the world of Carlos will turn upside down.

In a Whisper wins the IDFA Award for Best Feature-Length Documentary | IDFA

In a Whisper by Heidi Hassan and @patriciaperezfernandez wins the IDFA Award for Best Feature-Length Documentary.

The film centers on two emigrated Cuban filmmakers whose passion for film, friendship, and freedom reunites them after years apart.

“A refreshing expression of womanhood; an ode to loss; a celebration of friendship, will, and vulnerability; a reclaiming of hope and passion; and a piercingly honest cinematic dialogue are all embodied in this magical, original, and risk-taking cinematic endeavor,” the jury reported.

November 27, 2019 - Today, IDFA announced the winners of the competition programs during the IDFA 2019 Awards Ceremony at Eye Film Museum.

The somewhat strange neighbor of the retired Cuban teacher Celeste appears to be an 'alien'. She invites Celeste to visit her home planet Gryok. Is this a second, albeit literally light years away chance at happiness?

'Guava Island' Is a Pretty Postcard That Distances Itself From Cuba's Political Baggage

Guava Island is a postcard, a pretty picture with pretty people at the center, and the locals are outside the frame. There is very little Spanish in the film and no subtitles. This happens most notably in a blessing given by an elder to Kofi that is quickly ignored when Deni arrives on the scene. He’s the star after all. Distancing the narrative from present-day Cuba also means throwing off the political baggage that comes with the country wherever it goes. Most Americans watching Guava Island will only see the lush environment and weather-beaten buildings without having to think about the reasons this place looks like a fantasy island. Considering that Cuba is facing a food shortage from the fallout of Venezuela’s crisis and the Cold War embargo is heating up again, this feels like a very one-sided, flimsy postcard.

Read this insightful piece by Monica Castillo for Remezcla.

Donald Glover's 'Guava Island,' which premiered at Coachella, is the latest work to feature Cuba prominently – but only in the background.

Did You Know That The Original Joker Was Latino?

Did you know the original Joker was Cuban? Cuban American Cesar Julio Romero was born and raised in New York, where he made a name for himself as a triple-threat actor-singer-dancer before heading to Hollywood. He was also the grandson of Cuban National Hero José Martí.

Before #Pheonix, #Leto and #Ledger, even before #Nicholson, there was #CesarRomero.
The "latin lover" painted over his trademark mustache to portray the #Joker in the classic #Batman series, the first actor ever to bring the iconic villain to life.
