UK Premiere/ Santa y Andrés

Directed by Carlos Lechuga

Cuba, 1983. The story of an improbable friendship between Santa, a revolutionary country girl, and Andrés, a gay writer blacklisted by the government for having ‘ideological problems’. Gradually these two people, apparently so very different, realise that the things that bring them together are more important than those that separate them. This is a film is about friendship, union, tolerance and the freedom to be different. Great central performances make it a pleasure to watch the blossoming relationship, expressing the director’s belief that “friendship, love and art foster enduring bonds capable of bridging any political or ideological gap.”
