LA ÚLTIMA CENA / THE LAST SUPPER
Tomás Gutiérrez Alea Cuba, 1976, 35mm, 120 min.

During Holy Week, at the end of the eighteenth century, a count visits his Havana sugar mill on a day a slave has run away. The count holds a dinner for twelve of his slaves in order to convince them that happiness is possible in captivity. When the slaves later rebel against the count’s cruel overseer, the count must take sides.

Durante la Semana santa a finales del siglo XVIII, un conde visita su ingenio azucarero el mismo día que se ha escapado un esclavo. El conde prepara una cena para doce de sus esclavos porque quiere convencerles que la felicidad también es posible en cautiverio. Pero después, cuando los esclavos se rebelan contra el cruel capataz, el conde tendrá que tomar partido.
