GUANTANAMERA (1997, 104 mins.)
Directed by Tomas Gutierrez Alea and Juan Carlos Tabio
Alea’s final film is a graceful, comic-romantic road movie about a group of friends accompanying the body of a famous diva on a journey across Cuba to her final resting place in Havana. Deceptively fluid and easygoing, GUANTANAMERA is also a remarkably bold overview of contemporary Cuba: a last testament from Cuba’s greatest filmmaker.
