Y Sin Embargo

Synopsis:

A boy arrives late to a Math exam in a fictional school located in an imaginary location. To justify of being unpunctual, he elaborates an imaginative story that, due to its rupture with the conventional truth, breaks with the rigorous established order and generates a lot of questioning among students and teachers. Fearing that this would lead into a feared leadership that questions order and tradition and a subsequent loss of power and credibility, the Principal forces the child to renounce in public of his tale, AND YET… unexpected events align with the questioning of inconstancy.

Conducta  (Behaviour)
Synopsis:

In a contemporary Havana which is not shown in tourist leaflets a problematic child, orphaned and with a promiscuous drug addict mother, is going to be submitted to a correctional school. His teacher resists the decision of functionaries and bureaucrats because she is the only one that realizes the actual cause of the boy’s  problems and assumes the education of him and the rest of his classmates with a lot of responsibility and professionalism. Facing the problem, instead of avoiding it, her very behaviour is also confronted, because she is challenging institutionalized dogmas and prejudices that are obviously not doing any good to the educative process. A touching story that exposes a crude cross-section of the society.  An amazing debut of Armando Valdés as Chala, the protagonist, at only 12 years and with no previous acting experience.

Me Dicen Cuba

Synopsis:
“From all the arts, the inexistent one is music. Music does not exist. It only exists in the human mind and imagination. Music starts where words end.” This phrase from Cuban master composer Sergio Vitier appears at the beginning of this documentary. The film covers in a succinct synthesis how a group of the Cuban Music vanguard think about universal values, such as what is homeland, family, music, friendship, heroism and peace, among several others. Besides the unique Cuban nature of their opinions, the universality of these reflections is evident.
