GUANTANAMERA
Tomás Gutiérrez Alea Cuba/Spain, 1995, 35mm, 101 min.

When Aunt Yoyita dies during a visit to Gina in Guantánamo, Gina, along with Yoyita’s childhood sweetheart, the aging Cándido, must take the body to Havana. Gina’s undertaker husband Adolfo, eager to experiment with a “communist” way of tranporting the body, takes charge of the journey.

Cuando tia Yoyita muere durante una visita a Gina en Guantánamo, Gina y el amante de Yoyita, el viejo Cándido, se encargan de llevar el cadaver a La Habana. El esposo de Gina, un agente funerario, está loco por demostrar los métodos de transporte “comunistas” y se hace cargo del viaje.
