Cuba, 1983. Banned from writing, a dissident gay author has been forced to live in impoverished isolation in the countryside. When officials visit the region, an earnest partisan is assigned to monitor his activity. As she dutifully keeps watch, the two adversaries develop an unlikely friendship that is tested by the time and place in which they live. This unconventional love story beautifully underscores the power of compassion and the value of personal freedom. Original title: Santa y Andrés.


Director Carlos Lechuga is scheduled to attend the October 18th and 19th screenings.
