Un Paraíso bajo las estrellas

Directed by Gerardo Chijona

Chijona injects some serious issues into this comedy from Cuba, which dazzles the senses with some fantastic choreographed routines from within the famous Club Tropicana in Havana. As Sissy becomes a dancer at Havana’s hippest club against her father’s wishes, great characters, multiple plotlines and a screen that is always full of colour make this a fun trip through Havana’s pulsing nightlife.

Showing as part of Cuba Libre: Celebrating Cuban Cinema, a unique selection of films from Cuba showcasing the talents of new and established directors from Cuba’s diverse film culture.
