A true classic of Cuban cinematography, Tomás Gutiérrez Alea’s seminal film will be screened in a restored and remastered version. An introspective drama that unfolds during the missile crisis, it tells the story of a privileged bourgeois who has decided to stay in Havana after his family leaves the island seeking exile in Miami.
