A charming, amusing look at modern day Cuba through the eyes of two young children, Malu and Jorgito who travel the length of the island determined to find Malu’s father. Malu’s mum is a religious snob who forbids her from playing with Jorgito, the son of poor but proud socialists. Jorgito’s infuriated mother reciprocates in kind, but neither parent realizes the immense strength of the bond between the two. This makes great use of Cuba’s gorgeous scenery and elicits winning performances from the two kids whose spontaneous rapport transcends family, social and political differences as they discover the many delights of the island on their quest.
Director Juan Carlos Cremata will be present for a Q&A after the screening in Aberystwyth that will be simultaneously skyped to Chapter and Clwyd Theatr Cymru so that the audience in Cardiff can also take part.
