Directed by Sara Gómez and edited by Tomás Gutiérrez Alea, Julio García Espinosa
Gómez, a filmmaker focusing on Afro-Cuban cultural and gender issues, tackles the marginalized in a love story that is part documentary and part fiction. Lovers Yolanda and Mario clash over their
divergent socioeconomic backgrounds in Miraflores, a development built in 1962 for shantytown inhabitants outside of Havana. 1977, 16mm, in Spanish with English subtitles, 78 minutes.
