Chad Hahne; 2020; Cuba; 84 min.; in Spanish with English subtitles
The world of drag performers, trans people, and the broader queer community in Cuba is chronicled in this underground documentary, secretly filmed on an iPhone with the full consent of its subjects but without permission from the Cuban government. These intimate stories stretch back generations, showing the struggles that queer people have faced in Cuba and spotlighting the present-day fight for equal rights. Filmmaker Hahne (HOW TO SURVIVE A PLAGUE) has sensitively captured moments of sacrifice, friendship and the power of art to transform lives, while also celebrating how far the Cuban government and the island’s society have come in supporting LGBTQ rights.
