Hormigas En La Boca

Directed by Mariano Barroso

Based on the novel by the director’s brother Miguel, this beautifully shot, stylish film noir is set in Cuba of 1958 where Martín (Fernández) arrives after spending 10 years in a Spanish jail for a robbery. He’s searching for his girlfriend and ideological partner; she’d made off with the loot. After 10 years, it’s not easy finding Julia (Gil) – nor the money. Habana is full of gangsters and fortune hunters – and revolution is in the air.

We hope to welcome back director ¡Viva! 1996 guest, Mariano Barroso.
