In Ultimos Dias en la Habana (Last Days in Havana) Veteran filmmaker Fernando Pérez brings a sympathetic observational eye to this portrait of lives in limbo.
Here the old-fashioned tale of
a dying gay man and his surrogate family of friends,
neighbours and loved ones is transformed into
a touching celebration of love, devotion and stoical
endurance in which individual struggles reflect
a wider picture of Cuban society. This film is a
visceral and immediate depiction of modern-day
Cuba that isn’t afraid to face the contradictions.
The film bridged the gap between fact and fiction,
documentary and feature, to deliver a complex
portrait of the country.
It was rewarded the Audience Award as well as Best Iberoamerican Film at Film Festival of Malaga 2017.
Co-presented and hosted by Gay Night at Pathe de Munt and Roze Filmdagen; Amsterdam LGBTQ Film Festival.
