Santa and Andrés

February 17, 2018February 18, 2018

$5 – $9

Saturday and Sunday at 10:00 a.m.

Cuba, 1983: Santa is a young woman working on a state farm. Andrés is a middle-aged gay novelist who, the government says, has “ideological problems.” Judged opposed to the Revolution, someone needs to be sent to watch him and see that he doesn’t commit acts of public opposition. Santa is assigned to monitor his house arrest. This political odd-couple slowly discover that they have more in common than they expected.

Cuba’s submission for the 2017 Best Foreign-film Oscar, Santa and Andrés was named a New York Times Critics Pick: “Santa & Andrés begins as a film about separation and pain, but becomes a movie about reconciliation and healing” —Monica Castillo, New York Times.

“With quiet precision, (screenwriter and director Carlos) Lechuga charts Andrés’ resilience and Santa’s awakening, using a naturalistic visual style and sparse dialogue that reveals how these characters instinctively read between the lines.”—Serena Donadoni, Village Voice.

In Spanish with English subtitles. Unrated, 105 min.

Tickets: $9 for adults, $5 for students.

Part of the Cinema Explorations Winter Film Series.
