Description:

The International Year of Cuba is hosting a Spring semester Cuban film festival. All screenings are at 7:00pm. This program is sponsored by the WKU Office of International Programs, English Department, and History department.

De cierta manera (The Waiting List), directed by Sara Gomez, tells a story set in the poor neighborhoods of Havana, of a relationship between a teacher and a factory worker with very different backgrounds and perspectives. Sara Gomez is notably one of very few female Afro-Cuban directors in the Cuban film industry. This film was completed just before Gomez's death at the age of 31, and the film mixes documentary footage and fictional narrative to examine social divisions in Cuba following the 1959 revolution. (78 mins).

This screening will show on Apr 17th in Cherry Hall 210.
