CUBA | 93 minutes | 2016

Two contrasting characters in a snapshot of today’s Cuba, walking the line between economic crisis, suppressed free speech and stubborn solidarity. In a shabby apartment, Miguel, who dreams of running away to the Eldorado of the States, nurses Diego, who’s dying of AIDS. Every- thing about them is different — their energy, their hope, their vision of the future — and yet they remain friends. Former documentary-maker Pérez delivers a startling film that defies negativity of any kind. These “last days in Havana” are filled with humanity.
