Item Description

Seen through the eyes of a dismally naive peasant who falls in love with aHavana chorus girl, Guaguasi is a mesmerizing view of the Cuban Revolution. As this absurd romance is orchestrated and betrayed by Guaguasi's mentor, the dramatic elements of a love triangle emerge as a compelling metaphor for a country in transition. Cuban director Jorge Ulla (Nobody Listened) handles the story expertly, avoiding turning it into a political tract. Quirky, nearly surreal, and touchingly human, the film perpetuates the myth of Havana in glorious decadence. It also leaves us with a mysterious yet powerful snapshot of one of the most significant events of the 20th Century. Beautiful humane and undogmatic... A moving and disturbing story of sexual innocence and corruption" (Susan Sontag). In Spanish with English subtitles." Jorge Ulla---Dominican Republic---1979---107 mins.
