UK Premiere/ El Viaje extraordinario de Celeste García

Directed by Arturo Infante

Celeste García, a 60-year-old former schoolteacher and current guide at the Havana Planetarium, is looking for a life change. When a group of aliens land in Cuba offering earthlings a chance to visit their planet, Celeste signs up for the journey hoping for a better and more fulfilling life. But she’s also on an inner journey, which digs up a dark secret that has long tormented her.

In the director’s own words, thanks to his vociferous female family members and his love for 80s fantasy films, Celeste embodies two elements closest to his heart: “women’s empowerment and Sci-Fi.“ With a generous dose of Cuban political allegory, and a magical realist approach to alien landings, a new cult comedy has been born!
