Join us for a presentation of the Cuban drama "Viva Cuba" on Thursday, Oct. 25, at 7 p.m., in room 305 of the Weinberg Memorial Library. Yamile Silva, Ph.D., assistant professor of world languages and cultures, will lead a discussion following the film.
"Viva Cuba" is described by Film Movement as a tale akin to "Romeo and Juliet." The friendship between two children is threatened by their parents' differences. Malú is from an upperclass family and her single mother does not want her to play with Jorgito, as she thinks his background coarse and commonplace. Jorgito's mother, a poor socialist proud of her family's social standing, places similar restrictions on her son. What neither woman recognizes is the immense strength of the bond between Malú and Jorgito.
Directed by Juan Carlos Cremata Malberti, "Viva Cuba" is in Spanish with English subtitles.
